    Hi all.

    I have a question. Why does the Server 2003 built in Routing & Remote
    Access basic firewall allow inbound traffic on TCP ports: 1720, 1755, and
    2000? And what is listening on these ports? Netstat shows nothing. I'm
    concerned about this.

    Thanks for any help,

    Maybe it's an issue with the port scanner I'm using to probe my server.
    Like I said, netstat shows nothing listening on those ports, but my port
    scanner returns a connection on those ports. So I went to that shields up
    website and ran a port scan from there back at my server and it found
    nothing on those ports. Shields up reported back that they were stealthed.
    Just as they should be.

    Weird huh?
