What is running on port 10001

[ Edited ]

I am told by a security company working for a credit card company who has scanned a NS5M in router mode, that there is a service running on port 10001  and they want to know what it is.

It is the discovery service which allows Ubiquiti devices to be found, e.g. by airControl so they can be managed.


If you don't require this you can disable it on the Services tab.

That is Ubiquiti Discovery, their version of CDP.   In the AirMax line it's not an actual vulnerability, and you can remove it if you need to by turning it off in the radio under Services.
