    I have followed Wilders for years. But this is the first time I have asked a question here.
    My questions is, I can't get port 25 stealthed regardles which firewall I use, it is always just "closed"
    I can't find any cause for this. It might be that online scanners like grc.com sees my service providers ports?
    Any comments?

    Lets start off with stealth is not more secure than a closed response, if anything, stealth breaks protocols which causes more problems on both sides.

    Could you give a bit more information about your network/firewall setup?

    This sounds like your isp might be blocking the port, if not a router on your network setup. However if your isp was blocking it, they would usually stealth the port these days as many people believe the stealth fud, so now they stealth the port so it matches the results on their home firewalls.
