If you’re new to computer security, then this Firewall Test is for you. This test will check your computer for ports that are commonly left open. Open ports could allow your computer to be compromised. This firewall test will also check for open ports known to be used by Viruses and Trojans.
If you are the typical home computer user surfing the net, you should not find any open ports. If you do find open ports, we’ll show you how to lock down your system.
Note: this service is currently down for maintenance and should be back up by day’s end.
Advanced Firewall Test
This Firewall Test will allow you to pick a range of ports (or a specific port) to scan. This is useful for testing remote desktop services, ftp servers and other services running on non-standard ports.
Network administrators looking to test hidden ports will find this firewall test very useful. It eliminates the need to set up a server or outside computer to perform security audits and can reveal ports not thought to be open.
Firewall Tests – Accuracy
Note that some high-end hardware firewalls (cisco PIX, etc) and software firewalls may permanently block an IP address if it detects a security audit. You’ll want to temporarily disable this autoblock feature (not the firewall) or you’ll receive incorrect results (if you are an average user, this probably won’t concern you).
Here’s why: If we start to test your firewall for ports 1 to 1000 and your firewall blocks our IP address after a only few ports, then the remaining ports will appear closed to us when in fact they may actually be open.
If you are running on a private network, [you may be connected through a router, proxy, or firewall] and the firewall test may be conducted on that device instead of your computer; if you are unsure, do not perform the Security Audit! If you’re being scanned and want it stopped, simply Block the IP Address or leave us a comment below.
