    Hi,
    I am using the 'enhanced rulesset'.
    with the command "netstat -an', I find that there are so many 'listening port' on my local pc (from 1 to 1612). The attached snapshot shows a little part of the result.
    Is this normal?
    btw: does 0.0.0.0 mean ALL remote hosts?

    Hi,

    For me, this is not normal if you think no running application could explain that.
    The only explanation is an application is waiting on these ports. But it seems it is local connections only (it could be a kind of proxy).

    When it is not in a connected mode, I assume it is normal to have 0.0.0.0 on the client side.
