    Is there a general rule of thumb to use regarding these?

    What port would go where and why? :confused:

    I'm obviously new to having a dedicated server. I am hosting several gameservers which need their ports open/ accessible. I'm not sure exactly where they need to be opened.

    Obviously you need to have a firewall installed, assuming its linux, iptables comes by default but you can install firewalls like APF, or CSF (compatible with cPanel GUI). Both have core service ports like 25-SMTP, 80-Apache, all cPanel ports (2082,2086,2095 etc) open. You can open additional ports for inbound and outbound traffic through their configuration settings. Opening ports for inbound is always a security risk, unless you really need to open them for inbound traffic.
