    I have recently added a HughesNet HN7000 satellite system to a wired ethernet network consisting of a desktop and a laptop computer both running WinXP. The Hughes System info says the Router Address is: and the NAT IP Address is: It also says the Firewall is Disabled (from Network operations center). I installed ZoneAlarm Security Suite version:7.0.337.000 after the satellite installation. (note: As instructed, the HughesNet modem is connected to a LAN port, not the more common WAN port on the router.)

    I ran Shield Up security test and it reported 2 port stealthed, 1 closed and the rest wide OPEN. The IP address it tested was (the same as the NAT IP address). Then tried online security test on NetZero. It tested It showed all but a couple of ports stealthed.

    Went to "WhatIsMyIPAdderss.com" and it reported the same address NetZero used. Also reported "proxy server detected" and "Proxy reports IP as unknown" The Modem does use a proxy server but the same message appears with the proxy server disabled.

    Can someone please explain what is going on here and if my network is safe?
