    Hi

    I am using Eset smart security RC1 and I tested the fireall at PCflank

    when i did the test i had port 137 closed and also 1080, then i did gthe test again and that time the ports were stealthed, so i did it again and this time port 137 that was stealthed previously was just closed !! So i don't know what to think

    I also did the firewall test at Shields up and all the ports were stealthed

    so i don't know what to believe , Am i well protected or not ?

    Is PCflank tests good or not and is it shields up who is right ?

    Thanks for your help..:)

    I have gotten mixed results from PCFlunk also. They explain that some packets may get dropped en route? I would say you are safe.

    Thanks for your reply 10monty64 ..:) I think you are right , I also did the firewall tests at hackerwatch and my ports are secure but this site doesn't allow me to scan every port i want through

    Well i'd like to have opinions from others too , what they think about these tests ..:doubt:
