    Thought I'd run Shields Up at grc.com on this Kubuntu box. The IP is
    sitting in the DMZ (not behind the router firewall)

    "Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single
    packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system as a
    result of our security probing tests. Your system ignored and refused to
    reply to repeated Pings (ICMP Echo Requests). From the standpoint of the
    passing probes of any hacker, this machine does not exist on the Internet.
    Some questionable personal security systems expose their users by
    attempting to "counter-probe the prober", thus revealing themselves. But
    your system wisely remained silent in every way. Very nice."

    Run your Windoze box and post the results here, be honest.

    I disconnected the router, and ran with the Clearwire.com box, Pretty
    sure it's a NAT.

    But I always get that when I run the test :)

  4. After much thought,Meat Plow aka came up with this
    jewel:
    I just ran it using my old laptop- W2K pro- here are the results-

    "Your system has achieved a perfect "TruStealth" rating. Not a single
    packet — solicited or otherwise — was received from your system as a

    I guess my router is doing its job(I don't use a SW firewall).

    "Solicited TCP Packets: RECEIVED (FAILED) — As detailed in the port
    report below, one or more of your system's ports actively responded to
    our deliberate attempts to establish a connection. It is generally
    possible to increase your system's security by hiding it from the

    Oh dear! my Linux box is less secure than Windows!

    I didn't think *anybody* would fall for that one. Congratulations on
    being stupider than any XP or Vista users, Zenwolf.

    Hint: some people open ports *deliberately*. 22 and 80 in my case.

    Maybe we should both upgrade from iptables to ZoneAlarm?

    Detail each logical step in your argument that this would make yhim
    stupider than any XP or Vista user.

    Otherwise your claim looks like something a histrionic pansy might
    make.
    That's hardly cause for your histrionic pansy gloat, you histrionic
    pansy.
