Dear experts,

i need to open the port 2525 on my firewall, for establishing communication between me and a third party company.
I googled it, and i've built a figure about it, but are there any security risks behind opening this port?

Thanks much

Some SMTP mail servers use this port as a secondary delivery port.   It will probably be fine unless you at some point tend to use the port for accessing SMTP mail.

Commented:
The port has no "Official" use and therefore no virii or spyware actively scan for it, like ITSP said - some mail servers use it (Purely because its what they normally use (Port 25) repeated twice).

I feel u were not using that port for any SMTP purpose.
normally Hackers won't track this port.
