Vmware ESX 5.1

Hi,

I am trying to view the firewall rules on the hosts, really which ports are opened.  Is there an easy way to do this?

THanks

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

ESXi 5.1 firewall rules are listed in the vSphere Client, Configuration > Firewall

or use the following command

esxcli network firewall ruleset list
