Nmap Scan Shows Filtered Ports for VNC, RDP, SAMBA & SSH on iOS - is this normal?



  • I ran an nmap scan on my iPad’s IP address and the results showed the following ports listed below available in a filtered state. See screenshot for the actual terminal results.

    nmap results

    • SSH
    • Netbios-ssn
    • ms-wbt-server (Remote Desktop)
    • 4 different VNC ports
    • And an iPhone Sync port

    This can’t be normal, right? There are no apps installed that would explain these ports and the device is not jailbroken.

    Wrong, it can be normal.

    Your scan shows that there is only one open port, on port 62078.

    The results will be similar for other iDevices. For example, an iPhone 11 Pro on my network shows 985 closed ports, 14 filtered ports, and one open port (port 62078).
