Conductance and shot noise of an open cavity with diffusive boundary scattering are calculated within the Boltzmann-Langevin approach. In particular, conductance contains a nonuniversal geometric contribution, originating from the presence of open contacts. Subsequently, universal expressions for multiterminal conductance and noise, valid for all chaotic cavities, are obtained classically, based on the fact that the distribution function in the cavity depends only on energy, and using the principle of minimal correlations.
