    Is there any way to manually close open ports, ie when you run netsat to get a list of connected ports, can you d/c them?

    No.

    Invest in a firewall. Or even download a free one.

    Obviously never heard of Sygate, which is a million times better, and anyway, software firewalls are very limited, invest in a cisco pix.... if you have the cash to spare

    PS.Eul Grepus..that TCPA site's mighty scary!


    Yeah, aint it lovely.... as for Sygate, they arent free, but if you ask me nicely, i could send you an older version, with a crack, which you can then upgrade for free via their lovely website ;)

    I use Sygate now - but have used Norton Personal Firewall before - that always used to warn me of zillionsof things that were tryng to hack at me - whilst Sygate never seems to find anything - and even the logs are pretty empty..

    I do like the graph thing it produces though!!!

    And the most basic version is free for those of you using ZoneAlarm .. can't see what's so good about zone Alarm - but it's the first one most magaines and things recommend for a free one.
