Our security department is telling me that FTP port is listening and was executed by the ALM.exe application. Port 21. I am not sure where this got turned on, or sure how to disable it. I am not aware of any need for FTP access to be used by ALM? If so, How do I secure it?

Port 21 is the default port we use for accessing the ALM repository and is turned on in Site Administration.
Here is a link to a list of all the Site Admin parameters:

Here is the information concerning port 21:
