I just used ShieldsUp to do a probe on my ports and:eek: ,,, the only one on Stealth is Netbios, all others are listed as closed,( not stealth!!) there is one open, Port 135 , It says to use Personal Firewall to close it, and do it soon. I have Tiny personal firewall but obviously it is configured wrong, could someone here please help out? and tell me how to correctly set it to keep nasties out.

Many thanks for the information, after reading all that, I'm no wiser on how to block port 135 etc. Have been trying for the past 2 hours, as you say , it is a hard firewall to config, and I GIVE UP. I have Norton P.F 2002 on disc but I find it hogs resources,( as all Norton products seem to on my machine,) I have Norton Virus 2003 on Win Me, 20mb-hd, 192 ram ,so I don't really want to use another Norton product ( Norton PF 2002 )unless I really have to. Any other free firewalls out there that you know of and that are relatively easy to config for a newbie

Did a bit of research and decided to go with Sygate P.F.,now config as all ports in blocked mode, will see how things go, many thanks for your time. Problem resolved for now.

I use Tiny firewall version 2 and find it easy to configure to block port 135

all you do is open firewall administration/select advanced/click on add rule/

give a name in top box

better way is to follow attached screenshot
