Disable 5580 for offline from SC

From with SC there is an option to disable offline authentication under Setup > System Settings > Under Authentication Settings > Agents.


The help page says this

If your RSA Authentication Manager deployment does not use offline authentication, then you might want to prevent security scans from finding that the default offline authentication port 5580/TCP is enabled and listening. Click the Disable Offline Authentication Port checkbox to disable this port.


Even after checking this option for disable offline authentication,

  1. I still see openssl respond on port 5580  
  2. Netstat still lists the port 5580 as listening 


Can I get more insights around this ?
