I have a friend that's has Windows 98, and just upgraded to DSL. He is using Zone Alarm free and has two ports showing open on the Shields-Up website. The ports are for IE and Telnet. But they should be stealthed. By any self-respecting firewall that is... Zone Alarm free does not allow opening and closing ports. Is Ghostwall fully stealthed, out of the box and installed? If so, I'll switch him over to Ghostwall. Thanks!
