I seem to have run into kerio problems once again.....When i ran the shields up test at grc.com, it showed that ports 21,23 and 80 are open! I don't know why the firewall has not closed these ports??!!
FYI, i reformatted my system today and installed antivirus and firewall software right now! Any suggestions? I've tried to block many processes in the firewall but nothing seems to be working! Oh, BTW i'm using kerio 2.1.5! Thanks in advance!
Edit: I was able to close the above mentioned ports. However, I still get the following message from Shields Up!:
Tru stealth analysis: Failed
Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) — Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation.
