    Hi.

    I am using the ESS 3.0.551 version and just went to the "Shields up" test on www.grc.com to test it. I tried the test for "all service ports" and they all come back as blocked, not stealthed, same on PC Flank. This happens on both my laptop and desktop. Just to clarify I have a laptop with Vista Home Premium, and a desktop with Vista Ultimate connected to the internet via a D-link DIR-635 router, the laptop wirelessly. I previously used PC Tools firewall and all ports showed as stealth. Any settings in ESS I can change to change this?

    Thanks.
    Mossie

    Shields Up is probing your router, not ESS.

    unless you:

    a. don't have one
    b. put your machine in the DMZ to test

    I tested both with and without the router and with my PCs on the DMZ and got the same result each time.
