Talking Get Yourself Probed!!

If you want to test you firewalls capacity to stop intruders try this - the Shields Up - at this address.


Feed back on this post would be interesting.

The above address is the front door entrance, not a circumvented one I posted earlier. Sorry for any confusion.

Thumbs down Shields UP Could be a BAD JOKE!!!

Well I tried Shields Up four times and it told me the wrong IP address and said I had 3 ports open. Well the funny part is ZoneAlarm log no hits during the test. So I went to [URL=***********]DSL Reports Sheild Probe and did that test. Well ZA told me over 500 hits and the test told me: Conclusion: Healthy Setup! We could detect nothing interesting on any of the default ports on your IP address. Your computer appears to be a hard target. Well done!
So now you know why I could think the first test could be a joke. Just my two cents.

The Shields Up is no joke. The site is run and maintained by Steve Gibson - check his credentials out. Perhaps it's just a glitch on your particular probe.

I had notification that someone was trying to access my computer a little while after the post - all I had to do was press a button and access was denied!!

Thanks for the feed back.
