My firewall is "Sygate Personal Firewall Pro", I have used this program for several years. Unfortunately, I do not have the expertise to configure the program so I am using the program defaults. I periodically run the "Symantec Security Check" to see whether or not the ports are all stealthed. When I last ran the check all ports were stealthed but one. Apparently the "ICMP Ping" port was open; I know that a "ping" ask your computer to acknowledge its existence. Now before I open my mouth and really show my ignorance my question is this: Should this port be stealthed and if it should how do I go about stealthing it? I would really like to hear from some knowledgeable Sygate Pro users. As always I will appreciate any replies. Thanking you in advance for your cooperation and assistance.
