    hey guys, i formatted the drive.. installed xp SP2 as usuall:

    closed all required ports
    wwdc
    shootthemessenger
    bugoff



    scanning on GRC shows me stealth on all ports:
    Code:
    135 	
    Stealth 	dcom-scm
    DCOM Service Control Manager
    disabled DCOM,Task Sheduler,Distributed Transaction Coordinator etc..

    im using Phantom's ruleset v6 and each restart i see lots of blocked TCP incomming connections on port 135 .most come from:

    versatel.be/nl
    my isp
    interbusiness
    rima-tde net
    etc..

    i've never seen them bfore only after this format

    any feedback on this would be great :)

    Hi fred22,

    Perhaps with your previous installation, these packets were simply dropped silently (if the ! was not set for that rule) ?

    hey Frederic.. its the same setup and by default the rule: TCPBlock incomming connections have the "!" ticked right?!

    its nothing to worry about afterall?

    Yes, normally this kind of rule has the ! ticked by default.

    If GRC is saying you are stealth, and if Look 'n' Stop is explicity blocking incoming packets on port 135, no, there is nothing to worry about.
