    These are ports that the Service Console has closed by default on the Firewall. NIS, Kerberos, or Active Directory would have to be opened if you were going to configure your ESX server to authenticate using one of those directory services. (configured with the command esxcfg-auth by the way) By default those ports are closed and have to be opened if you're going to use that service.

    See this doc for more on the ESX built-in firewall.

    Esxcfg-firewall - http://72.14.205.104/search?q=cache:do0cm-wxcWsJ:download3.vmware.com/vmworld/2006/labs2006/vmworld.06.lab05-SECURITY-MANUAL-APPENDIX.pdf+esxcfg-firewall&hl=en&ct=clnk&cd=6&gl=us
