    Default Test your security using Gibson Research Corporations ShieldsUp tools.

    This information has been posted in the depths of many threads but never as a main topic.

    The tools in link below include some very useful methods of testing the security of your setup. They also include very good explanations of what the results mean.

    Thanks roraniel,
    you posted one of the most important firewall test web site.
    I Often use it and my TCP/UDP ports are all stealth.
    I'm behind a NAT but I prefer to install and use third party personal firewalls too.
    By the way

    I tried it and passed all tests yay, I downloaded some of the Apps and one told me that
    <DIR>
    64-Bit Processing Available
    </DIR>This processor does offer 64-bit modes of operation. This means that this system is able to run the significantly more secure 64-bit versions of Microsoft's Windows XP and Vista operating systems.

    So this means I can run 64bit Vista not sure I want to as my 32bit seems to be compatible with far more apps.
