    Hi d_sotos

    ... and welcome to Wilders :)

    I have moved your post to this forum so you will get the firewall specific input you are probably after.

    Is it general configuration suggestions you are after? ie. local server/internet server?

    Regards,

    CrazyM

    Thanks for the reply!
    I am trying to make my port 1025 stealth. Before Zonealarm pro I was using Sygate Personal Firewall Pro and everything was ok.
    Now, I have Internet server allowed only for the programs I know they are safe (firefox, opera etc) and everything else is in ask mode (this with the ?). So, what should I do in order to have this port stealthed but not exactly "blocked", I mean if a program wants to do something with this port, I want it to ask me first.
    I hope you got my question.
    Thank you very much

    Regards

    On my system vsmon.exe is using Port 1025.

    Go to Program Control, click the Programs tab, then try giving every single entry under the 'Server' column a red cross. With Server rights denied to every prog you should be fully stealthed. You only need to grant Server rights to those progs that absolutely need it - and very few, if any, do need such rights.
