It looks like this socket is BLOCKED!
Did you know?
Users used to wander the Information Superhighway sniffing for ports just like this
to see if they could gain unauthorized access.
But sometimes it was a trap.
Brute force might work.
But sometimes it requires billions of years of computation!
Maybe if you strategically slide the variables around...
...the data will fall right into place!
