Re: Light and simple port scanner detector

said by dave:

Well, then you're doing it arse-backwards.

1. Run the server

Then the issue of software firewalls comes up.

I want to see if traffic is coming in from the outside, regardless of how the software firewall is setup...

I guess then if you are looking at Wireshark then you need to look for tools that specifically use NDIS so that it is giving you all results and not interfered by firewalls and such nonsense.

»msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library···85).aspx

Microsoft has a tool too - »support.microsoft.com/kb/933741

Wireshark is a tool that utilizes another tool that other software also implement their tools around. See WinPcap

I want to be sure that the router is not blocking the ports so that I can start the server and then users from the net can connect to me.

....as dave See Profile says, you're doing it backwards.

Nmap from the inside and outside of your network could do this. Also, you could easily try Shields Up from grc.com.
That'd be the fastest way to check this out.

As for this comment

...not sure what you mean by "coming from the outside"? Do you mean coming from your router / firewall's WAN port,
or from a non-RF1918 IP address?

...still not clear what exactly you're trying to do here aefstoggaflm See Profile.

I have been using an old program for years now called Wall Watcher. It has not been updated in years but still work with most routers. It has all the tools you need to see what ports are being scaned and by who.

Enable logging on your software firewall, so that it logs when it rejects something.
