I have several McData Sphereon 4700 fibre channel switches (yes, I know they're old, but they're solid). Our security department has identified port 17185 as being open and a vulnerability. While I'm not so sure about the vulnerability, it's easier just to shut it off than argue.
My question is how do I shut off this port? I'm not sure what function is turned on within the switch that is using this port. Can anyone tell me what feature/function to turn off to disable this port, please?
Update: here's a port scan of one switch showing the UDP port 17185.

That McDATA use any such Port open as Default , is unknown to me.
Are you sure this open Port as be identified from 4700 ?
can you start any Port Scanner collect the output, - you can edited before some Internally Addresses - and post this output here ?
Is probable the port was activated for any Virtual Connection, eg. NPIV is enabled by Default since early Rel. 9.x, but I don't know if NPIV set any such Port.

but there is a problem. I can't upgrade firmware. I think the best way to fix this problem is blocking this port from the switch! but I don't know how to do it !!! somebody help me!!
