I have run the stealth ports wizard on this machine which is behind a NAT router (on a LAN)
Someone suggested running the ShieldsUp test on the www.grc.com website. This shows all my ports as closed but not Stealth. (it gets the IP address wrong though)
I ask this because another computer, a brand new Vista machine, shows system listening on port 445, this person suggested the check as this could cause problems. Shield up gives the same result on the Vista machine.
COMDOO 126.96.36.1990 dosnt seem to notice anything happening!
My questions is should I worry about this and what if anything need doing. The Vista machine will soon be directly attached to a ‘dial up’ Internet connection.
