Common Ports Check Reports Port 25 Open?

    TDS-3 Common Ports Check Plug-in consistently reports that port 25 (SMTP) is open (Windows XP Pro - all updates installed); yet Port Explorer and NETSTAT do not show this port open.

    Have rebooted several times, and yet Common Ports Check Plug-in consistently shows this port open (while no other tool sees the port open.)

    Does anyone else see this behavior? Any thoughts/suggestions?

    Best regards,
    Mike

    P.S. Two independent external port scans confirm Port 25 not open through the firewall.

    Sounds like a bug, TDS-3 may be interpreting the closed or stealth status incorrectly

    Everything should be shown correctly in Port Explorer, the complete port analysis tool :)

    I have the same results when using TDS3's common ports check. Port 25 is always "open," yet Port Explorer does not show a connection to that port. TDS3 bug...?

    Shield's Up and other online scanners show port 25 as stealth.
