[size=10]WARNING![/size]

Don't install ZA v5.0.590.043 Why? it doesn't block port 1024 when I did a test at ShieldUp Website to test the firewall.

This is a bug from ZA don't install :o

Always keep a backup copy of your last version of ZA until the bugs are fix.

v4.5.590.000 I think? You can still get it at ZA website.

Speedy,

Thank you for the "heads up" on the port open bug.
I will run a test now and get back to you.

Actually, the 590.015 seems to be ok as far as 1024 is concerned, however, it still allows ICMP pings to be sent and received which makes a computer "locatable".

I set ZA to High which should make it completely stealth.
All ports are hidden to the internet; Messenger pops are blocked on UDP 35  but otherwise all seems ok.

I normally depend on Sygate since it is configurable to port blocking and I can limit or stop certain Udp, Imcp traffic.

Did you query ZA tech support yet?

PS:  If users go to www.grc.com and look for the "old" Shields Up, they are in for a surprise.  SU has changed to a "panel" format which is really nice.  New features have been added.  It is a must "link".

ZA, ShieldUp and port detection
For me, the known problem at 113...

The IDENT protocol's port 113 is quite problematical and tricky to stealth. If the user's port 113 is completely stealthed, connections to some remote Internet servers such as eMail, Internet Relay Chat (IRC), and others, may be delayed or denied altogether. For this reason, many NAT routers and personal firewalls do not attempt to stealth port 113, they settle for leaving it closed. One of the first things that caught my eye about the ZoneAlarm personal firewall was that it was clever about handling port 113: It "adaptively stealthed" the port.

Even after many years, the (free) ZoneAlarm personal firewall from Zone Labs is the only personal firewall to "adaptively" stealth port 113. Unlike any other firewall or NAT router (any of which could also do the same) this allows port 113 to be stealthed to any passing Internet scanners or probes, but "unstealthed" for any valid IDENT connection attempts originating from remote servers with which the user's computer is attempting to connect. (Since this could easily be done by any personal firewall or even NAT routers, I am hopeful that this feature might yet appear in other products.)

"Adaptive Stealthing" means that when a TCP SYN packet arrives to request a connection to your machine's port 113, ZoneAlarm checks, on the fly, to see whether your machine currently has any sort of "relationship" with the remote machine (such as a pending outgoing connection attempt). If so, the remote machine is considered to be "friendly" and its IDENT request packet is allowed to pass through ZoneAlarm's firewall. But if the IDENT originating machine is not known to ZoneAlarm as a "friendly" machine, the connection requesting packet is dropped and discarded, rendering port 113 stealth to all unknown port scanners. It's very slick.

IDENT, ZoneAlarm, and ShieldsUP!

Even though your computer's web browser already has a relationship with the web server at GRC, our tests originate from a different "foreign" IP address. ZoneAlarm therefore drops incoming packets to port 113 from this different probing IP address and ZoneAlarm users see that port 113 is stealthed to passing Internet scans.

To demonstrate how ZoneAlarm (and perhaps someday other firewalls or NAT routers) selectively "unstealth" port 113 — but only for known "friendly" machines — we simply initiate a connection from your web browser to the ShieldsUP! scanning IP. Even though the connection attempt will ultimately fail (since there's no web server at the probing address), ZoneAlarm will note the outgoing attempt and will unstealth port 113 for subsequent probes: http://grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2

I always listen about firewall here. I'm happy to found a Steve Gibson's testimonial about ZoneAlarm. Well, you know, Gibson is Gibson (www.grc.com):

One of the things that first caught my eye about the Zone Alarm personal firewall (aside from the fact that is was free) was that it has always been very clever about handling IDENT's port 113. I recall being impressed and thinking "these guys really know what they're doing". When Zone Alarm receives an inbound connection request for port 113, it checks to see whether the computer has recently initiated any outbound connections to the remote server sending the IDENT request. If not, the IDENT packet is simply dropped, stealthing the protected machine. But if the user does have an existing "relationship" with the sender of the IDENT request, the IDENT packet is allowed to pass through Zone Alarm's firewall protection so that the user's system can respond normally (which usually means immediately returning a closed status for the port). This means that Zone Alarm is a "stateful packet inspecting personal firewall", not just a simpler static packet filter.

At the time of this writing, Zone Alarm is still the only personal firewall to offer this sort of adaptive dynamic IDENT port handling. I hope that other firewalls will follow suit once the benefits are better understood.

The good news is that since IDENT is almost never used, simple "hard stealthing" of port 113, which is available from all personal firewalls, is probably sufficient. It will allow your system to remain completely invisible on the Internet and will almost certainly never cause any connection trouble.
