That is how every operating system i've ever used behaves when there
is no firewall. Ports are only "open" when there is something listening
I installed ufw to see if it would overide the system defaults.
A firewall can only filter or reject stuff, it can't really accept
stuff if there is no application there to take it.
I'll unsubscribe this list as everything I ask is deemed off topic.
I get the impression this list is only for developers and users of the
latest ARM and Cortex devices.
I was grossly mistaken to suspect that running Debian on an ARM5TE was
supported by the debian-arm list.
IMO issues with debian installs on arm systems are on-topic on this list.
Until and unless it's determined with reasonable certainty that the issue
is not platform specific.
Please don't take a suggestion that a particular question may be
better handled on another list as an indication that your device is
not supported here.
