    Is this really a legit firewall test site?

    I have ran the test 10 time and come up with different results each time for the "Quick Test" without changing anything to router, firewall, software, browser, etc.

    Can't say I know anything about PC Flank but here is a reliable site you might like to try. I have used them. There are also other tests you can do from that website. Enjoy. :cool:

    And here is a poll / thread regarding online security scan sites:

    Most trusted online security scan?

    BTW, PCFlank is pretty reliable in my experience. Most sites are capable of giving contradictory results once in a while (but not consistently).

    PCFlank tends to be favorable to Outpost, but I do find use for the site - especially the browser check and exploit check.

    BTW, from that grc site, Steve Gibson really doesn't like the Norton firewalls - and he has a point. I use ZoneAlarm Pro.
