    Hello mc-market,

    Recently I've been trying to get voting setup on my bungeecord, but its a bit harder than a usual setup. I've setup votifier plenty of times before but will just need some advice on if its okay to open a port that I've allocated to votifier that I'm planning on setting up on the bungeecord host.

    Issues:
    - Every server apart from bungeecord is local hosted.
    - All ports apart from used ones are closed from previous sys admin. (should be secure) :tup:
    - Must have votifier setup on bungeecord as other servers are simply not possible to get it working.
    - If opening a random port for voting is a bad idea?

    I would like to get voting setup but for it not to compromise the server security.
    Requesting help as I know very little about ports, would like some advice on what would work best, and if anyone has done this before.

    Feel free to message me on discord.

    Thanks!

    No, it is not a bad idea. Opening unused ports is a bad idea.
