    Hi,

    I am at a lost itrying to use Kapersky AV with any of the Firewall >> Sygatae Pro V5.6 2808, Mcafee Personal Firewall Plus V6.004, Outpost , Zone Alarm, Tiny , Kerio, Black Ice, Armor2Net,....... ( Windows XP, SP2 )

    All the Firewalls shows result of "Stealth" , with the Independent testing Facilicity like : Grc.com, sygate Security Testing, Hackerwatch , PCflank ...

    But one place AuditMYPC .com with the FirewallTest2 , that scans Network starting from Ports 2 - 65,535 , Ports 1125, 1100 are always "OPEN" when using Kapersky AV.
    The moment I Disable Kapersky, my Firewall achieves a perfect "Stealth".

    I really don't know how to configure the Firewalls mention to accomodate using Kapersky AV to work with any of the firewalls to achieve a perfect "Stealth " o_O
    I am kind of "Sold " on Kapersky AV.
    Please help.......

    :( :( :(

    KAV asks for server rights through Ports 1110 and 1025, that is why they remain unstealthed. I'm using Zone Alarm Pro and had the same problem, when I queried this with Kaspersky they said KAV needed these rights for FTP on updates. However I have got over the problem by configuring ZAP to deny server rights to KAV ( and any other progs). I am now fully stealthed and have not noticed any ill effects on KAV during the last few weeks I have been doing this.
