Keeping all ports open in an exit policy

My hosting company told me that I could open all ports in my exit policy, so I opened all ports. What do you think about opening all ports?

The more opened ports, the more your exit relays are used for (different) malicious use-cases. And as a result, you/your hosting provider will receive more abuse/legal notices/requests.

If the hosting provider doesn’t care about all the notices/requests, then you should be fine. Do note that some ports attract a disproportionate amount of abuse though. But you could always limit it some more at a later point in time if certain ports are a pain to deal with.


What hosting company are you using that allows all open ports?
