No, I'm not (I actually thought that it was the other way round)

I found it practical to have a port (389 or equivalent) that I could
authorize via iptables only on the local network., and another one
(636 or equivalent) that could be accessed from outside.

What are the pro and cons of both approaches?

Comments more than welcome!
