    I'm using NetVeda as my firewall and ran a couple of different test on it.
    With PC Flank their advanced port scanner test shows my firewall as being stealthed one minute then a port is closed the next minute.
    I ran this same test over a couple of more times with the same results.
    I did the same with GRC's Sheilds Up but everytime it says that I am completely stealthed.
    So what gives with this PC Flank testing?
    Why am I stealthed on one test and the next test I have an open port?
    Sorry but someone may have to explain this to me slowly, I'm still in the newbie stage with firewalls and this is confusing o_O
    I have an idea of how to set up my firewall, I'm not that new where I just run it with the default settings :p
