Please pardon the stupid question, but are you talking about blocking
those ports inbound or outbound? I know it doesn't seem to make much
difference, but I've got sites connected through a VPN, so I don't do
much in the way of blocking outbound, but I do block a lot of inbound
and the ports you list are all within my inbound blocking list (inbound
UDP >1023 is another story - still don't know what to do there).
