    I get loads of port scans.. you could report it back to the ISP its coming from buy alot of the time its probably not them actually doing it (trojan/bot etc) so I just leave sygate to do its work.. its not a dedicated attack on u personally just a "normal" scan.

    First time I got my firewall I thought I was under attack as I watched all the Red blocked icons !

    I love Sygate, it's particularly useful for letting you know what programs already on your machine are trying to access the internet.

    However for incoming scan protection I also bought a Netgear DG834G Wireless G DSL router which has a fabulously powerful hardware firewall built in.

    The theory I use is that if a hacker gets a "blocked" response they are then aware that there is currently a machine active on that IP address. I'm not sure how it works but with my router even my mail port is invisible to port scans.

    If you want to see how secure your system is try the Shields Up analysis website. I use it to check that all my machine achieve total stealth.

    Mark.

    I've got the 834G as well, bulletproof in a nutshell.

    HW NAT firewall is the only totally secure way to surf..

    Would you rather be blocking PortScan/DOS attacks *on* your PC or before they get to your PC... that is the question you should be asking yourself.. ;)

    I assume my Linksys router is doing the same as the Netgear one ? I've got it to assign IP addresses to the computers on my network.
    Is it worth installing something like Sygate as well ?
