Hi all, Now that I have got Port Explorer up and running I have printed out part of the Help files, and am working through them. I use Sygate Personal Firewall and when I run PE it shows the following in red: -4983 UDP 0.0.0.0. 1025 *.* *.* * Listening 0/0 0/0 smc.exe The next line says: -4983 UDP 127.0.0.1 1028 127.0.0.1 1028 Listening 2/2 2/2 smc.exe Now I have run TDS3, AVG6, Spybot, and nothing untowards has been reported so I`m not concerned about a threat, but why does PE show my firewall in red?
