    when doing the test i show port 113 as closed.

    it 'fails' the test because the port is not stealth-ed.
    is that something to be concerned about?
    ------------------------------------------
    edit:

    i've done some googling and it seems there's no consensus as to whether it is best to have this port closed or stealthed.
    from what i've read, it does not seem to be a security concern.

    i'd still like to hear from our fellow Wilders members. :)
    --------------------------------------------------------
    edit:
    also it would be nice if someone could expand a little on the Phant0m Ruleset.
    there is not much info on Phant0m's site about how it is different than the Default ruleset.

    Identd could be opened by the Router, or a Identd or a bad rule.

    it's just like you spoke a alien language.
    this is like high wizardry to me. :D

    i will learn as i go along as needed, if the ROI is large enough. ;)

    still, i'd like you to explain more about your own ruleset and why it would potentially interest a newbie like meself.
    as would others, i'm sure...

    LnS passed the Shields Up test using the Enhanced Ruleset.

    Hi,

    You must have been using the standard ruleset, .. the rule named 'TCP : Authorize Identification’ exists and enabled by default to allow some services like IRC to do identifications. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ident

    The Enhanced ruleset also has this rule but disabled by default, also including the rule ‘TCP : Block incoming connections’ just below it, which allow you to pass TCP SYN port scans (and block remote connections attempts).


    Regarding P. Ruleset, not sure what I could possibly add to what I’ve already have said on the site, .. without getting very technical, security and convenience would be the fundamental grounds it offers.
