    What Port/s does Flash Player use?

    hi everyone,

    i have been having issues with flashplayer on windows for a few weeks now and i need to watch a live stream today, but after switching to my linux OS, i just realised that UFW is preventing me from viewing it. i was just wondering if anyone could tell me the ports that flash uses so i can add the rules to UFW in linux.

    thanks for your time

    The default setting in UFW allows all connections unless you have created a rule and in that case you would know what rules you have created and which to change .The following page includes some basic UFW commands which are still applicable.
    “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can".

    interesting, I have never had any issues with ufw and flash. have you ran netstat to list the ports while running whatever flash sites you are having issues with?
