    Default ZA free version 10.1.065.000 and open port 1027

    Hello,

    I installed ZA free 10.1.065.000 recently on my XP (SP3) machine and since then GRC.com regularly tells me that my port 1027 is open, which didn't happen on the previous version (although it did on some older ones before that.) As nothing else has changed that I can see can anybody suggest what might be going on please?

    Thank you,

    John Butcher.

    Hi;


    GRC Shields up tests a firewall but it does not discriminate as to which firewall will be tested - usually (Shields up only test the first Firewall that it encounters) the modem (often with it's own firewall) or the router will be seen first by the GRC's shields up port scan.

    Thus the hardware firewalls are tested, as the computer (and it's software firewall) itself is never seen by the public Internet or by the port scanner.

    So "GRC Shields up" very seldom ever reached the level of Zone Alarm to Test it..

    Thank you very much for your reply. If I understand you, I needn't worry overmuch as ZA will be keeping things safe even if the modem lets a probe through?
