Following up from an issue today, I have a question, possibly stupid, but here goes.
How can I block/prevent an application binding to a specific port? This pertains to linux/unix, but I'd be interested in NT as well.
I know I can prevent traffic using a firewall, and ports under 1024 require root, but I wasn't aware of a way to protect a port, only allowing a designated app to bind.
Is there a way?
