Although i'm not an expert i would say it depends on the port... Say for
example that we're talking about a DNS server... surely you'll leave
open the UDP port 53 so that i will answer to clients but you won't open
TCP 53 as well unless you want to allow everybody to perform zone
I think that sort of rule more or less applies to all the other ports as
well... If you don't need it open.. close it... :-)
