    Ever since I installed PC Tools Firewall, I see two new listening ports in TCPView. They are both "System" (No process associated with them) listening on local port 9000 and remote port zero. I think they are loopbacks. Anyway, does this have something to do with the new firewall driver? One is TCP and the other is TCPv6....PC Tools supports IPV6, right?

    It as been reported that the listening on local port 9000 is for internal use to display messages, such as when comms are blocked via ruleset. I will check when I re-install PCT firewall (hopefully later today)
