    Default "Ping problem

    When I run Shields Up to check that I am running in a stealth mode, my lap top fails because it allows pings and responds to them.

    The following is the message I get. I'm running windows 7, 64-bit. Thanks



    Ping Reply: RECEIVED (FAILED) Your system REPLIED to our Ping (ICMP Echo) requests, making it visible on the Internet. Most personal firewalls can be configured to block, drop, and ignore such ping requests in order to better hide systems from hackers. This is highly recommended since "Ping" is among the oldest and most common methods used to locate systems prior to further exploitation.

    Default Re: "Ping problem

    You main need to log into your router/modem and set it up not to respond to pings (if it is allowed).
