    Port 1027 fails the 'Shields Up' test. It is closed but not stealthed. What rule(s) do I add and where in the list do the rule(s) go? I am a relative beginner.

    Thank you.

    1st, you must make certain that you are actually testing the firewall and not your router. Do you sit behind a router? If so, then your router is being tested, not Kerio.

    Also, make sure you don't use the default ruleset. It can be tightened up considerably. Look here for the better replacement and instructions for installing it, using it, etc.

    Remember, kerio 2.1.5 is a rule based firewall, so it will take some getting used to and you need to be willing to hand edit rules and understand some things about the internet(like TCP/IP TCP, UDP, ICMP, IGMP, etc.).
