    If there is someone using BitDefender Professional Plus 9, could you please test it's firewall on http://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2 if all ports are stealthed in test 2 and 3 (standard port range and all ports) You need to get green PASS logo. From some weird reson, my BD Pro+ 9 fails to stealth ports (only 5 were stealthed, others just closed). Also it responded to Ping Reply. I'd like to see if it's something on my side or their firewall doesn't work as it should...
    Thx for help

    I've dont this test before using BD Pro 9 on one of my other PC's and it passed with all ports stealthed. If with ZA Pro 6 on another PC also passed with stealthed remarks as well.

    This is what I would do if I were you. Disable the BD firewall and try and re-do the test again, but this time using your router firewall. The fault or culprit here could be in your router and not the BD firewall.

    Further questions:

    1. What brand router are you using ?
    2. Have you made any changes to BD Pro 9 after installing it ?
    3. Have you tried other FW tests apart from GRC ?

    You know what happens when you assume :rolleyes: ;)
    Did the scan at grc show up in the firewall logs?
