Port 6699 open on new Vox3 router

Anyone else have this port open on their Vox3 router?

Couldn't find much info other than old Napster and malware uses, but it's a bit concerning

Firmware version: 19.2.0307-3261013

 

Thanks, Tom

Worth pointing out that what appear to open ports when scanned from within a local network will almost certainly not be the same as if you scan the device from the internet!

I should clarify this was from a Fing scan from phone on wifi - whatismyip.com says port is closed. Is the port blocked by Vodafone?

Have you visited grc.com (ShieldsUp!) and tried the pen-tests on there?

Totally forgot about the grc site. Used it all the time in my previous job. It too gives the all-clear.
