i need some help; this port shows as open in my computer, but i have gone to services.msc and found that the SSDP wasn't installed. and that program unPnP also showed my i didn't have it installed. what can be happening? by the way, i was infected by the worms w32.randex.gen and AZ. i guess i have deleted it completely -including registry entries-; and i actually don't know if it had something to do.
Hi there, I have disabled both the UPnP and SSDP discover services. However my fire wall (Agnitum Outpost) still reports hundreds of attempts to access my computer, varying from ports 1024 to 65425. Nothing is getting through (thanks to the firewall) but so many 'hits' on the firewall consquently cause cpu jumps making other programs slow down (not good!). Any ideas? John
How you be so sure nothing is getting through your firewall? I thought that Tiny Personal Firewall was not allowing anything through until I ran NetActiv on the WAN interface. This picked up packets coming through the Firewall on Ports where I had rules set up to deny. Since I have upgraded to the latest Kerio version no more problems.
