I am working to set up OpenVPN access to my home network. To do this, I had to contact my ISP, because they had the necessary port blocked at the Gateway/Router that I do not have access to.
In my house, I have a Google WiFi system.
They put the provided Gateway in Bridge mode, instead of Router mode. This solved my problem, but when I ran an nmap against my public IP afterwards, a great number of ports (including vulnerable ones) were now listed as "open".
My question is, since I have the router in the house, and I have it set up to block all ports I have not configured to forward, is there any real risk here, having the ports showing as open at the Gateway?
