    Ok, I was looking around, and on the "Web based proxies" (or whatever) topic, I was checking out the post, saying to goto google, and blah blah blah, and www.ipchicken.com I went there through google, said I had open ports, when there normally, and said I had open ports, not wanting to trust there scanner, I went to ShieldsUp, and done a test, and passed, I done it again, and failed (The ports were blocked, but not stealth) done it again, passed, I went yo Symantec.com's test, and passed, now, I am wondering how good SecuritySpace's tests are (http://www.securityspace.com/smysecure/daudit_ports.html) anyone tried it? and any other port scanners I can test and see how "stealthed" I am? As always, I am running Sygate 5.0 free, still :p

    Hi Comp01.

    You're running Sygate?
    Search there website if you haven't used their port scanner.It's not a fast port scan though!

    Here's another site that I use for firewall testing,

    IPChicken works on scare tactics, and saying your vulnerable is BS.

    The fact is you have to open a port to allow that page to be downloaded, but a secure configuration wouldn't allow any other communications with that port.

    So don't believe what the bird says, they are best killed, breaded, and fried :cool:
