    HI.
    I have a router with NAT and the router is not wireless so i am connected to him by cable. My question is there is any way to a hacker get into the network?




    ps: i cannot close port 22 in my NAT so that port is open. but its closed in OA (i think).


    i have has my firewall Online armor.

    Do you mean actively hack into your network, as in - send an exploit against a vulnerable service and then get control over it or the system?

    The chances: not very high. In fact very low.

    The fact your router allows incoming traffic on port 22 does not mean your local NAT-ed machines have this port open, so this means nothing. Plus a software firewall ... you're ok.

    yes.

    well when i do a a shields up test the only port that is open is the port 22 the rest is stealth, but in the nat i dont have a rule for this port so it should be closed ( it's strange).

    and yes i have a software firewall ( online armor ), so what do you think ?

    its all ok ?


    Thanks,
