Hello! I use trillian as my IM. Today, for the first time I tried setting it to chat in a mIRC chatroom. Upon connecting to the mIRC server ZA Free (6.1.737.000) asked me to allow it to run as a server. I allowed it but now I'm not sure.
If I let Trillian run both as Access and Server (all green in the Access and Server fields) will my ports be not stealthed anymore? I mean, will my pc be visible? Or will ZA keep making it invisible? In the past I tried scans from Symantec and pcflank and Sygate to see if really ZA would make all the ports stealted. And it passed. I would like to know if, allowing Trillian or other programs like bittornado rights as Servers will open ports and make them visible.
