Re: OS X UDP Port 137, 138, 139 Kill

I have passive ftp turned on in the Network preferences and ports 137 to 139 are not open. If ftp is checked in sharing prefs then ports 20-21 and ports above 1023 can be open.
If passive ftp is checked then you should be able to initiate connections and receive ftp downloads but no one externally should be able to initiate a connection to your machine. I have not had trouble downloading and scans don't show open ports to the outside with passive checked.
