Hi, Our port scanner has detected '1894' as an open port. We know 1894 is an 'O2Server' port. Could you please throw some light on the port '1894'? Thanks kbs

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

1) It’s very good with venison.

2) o2Server is a UNIX/Linux database provider daemon from o2-Technology. If you do not require external users to access the database server directly, close the port at the point where your LAN connects to the internet, or your firewall. If you do not run o2-Technology’s o2Server, close the port everywhere, block the port completely. If you get complaints, human or otherwise, find out where, why and how it is being used and work from there.

3) O2Server *was* a wireless network and network administration server, but the company and its website has vanished. Here is what I found regarding this product:

******************************
GreenRamp Software announced the launch of its O2Server wireless network and database administration solution. According to the company, by using any Web-enabled cellular phone or PDA, network administrators and IT managers can monitor and conduct operations on their networks and servers.

O2Server is available for Windows NT4 and 2000, MS SQL Server, Oracle, Linux, Exchange Server, and Sun Solaris. Users can see what is going on with their systems through menu-driven screens. Users can start and stop services, reboot their servers, take a “snapshot” of their systems, read event logs, and execute batch files via wireless devices. The O2Server also has an error notification module that notifies the admin when an error occurs, telling what the problem is and allowing the admin to fix it without using a laptop and modem.

For more information, contact: GreenRamp, 6830 North Broadway, Suite G, Denver, CO 80221; Phone: (877) 536-4700; Fax: (303) 412-8999; WWW: http://www.greenramp.com.

******************************

Note: This is all I could find about this port, and o2Server, but that doesn’t mean they are the only possible answers. So take this with a grain of salt, but not too large of one as both non-vinted answers look to be a potentially huge security risk, if you don’t know what they are or why they are on your network.
