If an institution has opted in to the scheme, tcp and udp packets with a destination port number in the range 1024-63999 will be rejected where they enter an institution's network from the CUDN, subject agreed exceptions by IP address or by port. The blocking is introduced in two stages:

  1. A period of monitoring is undertaken to determine whether the exceptions listed below will be adequate, or whether additional exceptions are needed.
  2. After agreeing the exceptions with the institution's IT staff, the blocking is activated.

Based on experience to date, the exceptions in the following table are used as a starting point for most institutions. The table may be updated in the light of further experience.
