At work, we've got Windows Server 2008 running. I've set up XAMPP, and a few websites - everything works perfectly.
However, outgoing port 80 is blocked in the firewall for 'security' reasons. I was wondering if there's any merit to this?
Well, from a security standpoint, every port should be closed by default. And then if there is need,the necessary port can be opened. Port 80 isn't or shouldn't be an exception.
