    Thank you for taking the time to read this.

    I have an ADSL modem with the modems firewall activated. Eset Smart Security Firewall is active and set to "automatic mode with exceptions"

    After performing the "all service ports" exam. It shows 99% of ports are in stealth but one port is "open".

    That port is Port 80 "http".

    When I perfrom the "common ports" scan, three ports are listed as "open". They are: port 21 (FTP), port 23 (Telnet) and the "http" port again.

    Should I be concerned?

    Should I disable the ADSL modems Firewall and just use ESET's? *puppy*

    what model modem in case those ports can be closed. But did you check that the ip address scanned was the ip address allocated to you

    The model is Billion BiPAC 5210S RC ADSL+2 Modem.

    Yes, it appears to have my correct IP

    Modem firewall is now turned off.

    and is the situation better with the FW off? Not sure if you can check as I get
    "..
    ShieldsUP! is currently scanning
    as many visitors as possible.
    "
    I would put it back on + SP setting. What other settings are there and did you tweak them? Are there any settings to do with you ISP accessing the modem in order to help?

    There is possibly a setting in your modem to answer pings(Respond to Ping on Internet WAN Port or something similar)which by default is probably active:-this will show as an open or unstealthed port do to the modem or router answering the ping from the GRC site
