Re: How to detect..

So aefstoggaflm See Profile I've tried the grc.com (Shield's Up), results are:
THE EQUIPMENT AT THE TARGET IP ADDRESS
DID NOT RESPOND TO OUR UPnP PROBES!
(That's good news!)
Is that really good news?

Yes, for you.

That test only test the device that is handling the public IP (WAN Level). It does not test the LAN or OS.

To test at the LAN level:

If you don't care about sources, just pick the developers tool package
and install it; when the setup completes you'll have a new program
group containing a number of UPnP tools; the ones we're interested into
are called Device Sniffer and Device Spy; let's start with the
first one, run it (and allow it on your firewall) and if there are any
active UPnP clients seeking for UPnP enabled devices you'll see the
discovery packets logged onto the program GUI; once done, just close
the app and fire up Device Spy, the app will send out discover
packets and show the UPnP devices it discovered (in some cases you may
need to use the rescan network to discover more devices); just let it
running (iconize it) for a while and, again, if there are any UPnP
devices sitting on the network, the app will list them.

After that is done, to test at the OS level if UPnP is enabled or not - on Windows: I point you to grc.com -> Freeware -> Security -> UnPlug n' Pray. That tool also lets you disable UPnP if it is enabled.

This page has reported 3231 positive “exposed” results.

Is that really good news?

For those other users, no.

I am sure that they will fix their issue..

So I tried Device Sniffer it just kept on going and going with the same results (could this be because I'm using LogMeIn from work?)
Device Spy didn't do anything at all, for at least 5 mins, should I leave it longer?

I went ahead and use the Unplug n' Pray, it was enabled! But now disabled.

I'm not sure if you had read my previous post regarding Cisco Network Magic Pro?
Any idea if it's fact providing the correct info?

I've download the tool package and started Device Sniffer, it sniffed...and sniffed...with always the same results. Possibly because I'm connected to my PC using LogMeIn fom work?
I then tried Device Spy, got nothing at all, even after 5 mins.... should I leave it longer?

Then I went ahead and tried the Unplug n' Pray, it was enabled!
But now disabled

Also I'm not sure if you noticed one of my previous post regarding Cisco Network Magic Pro, any idea if this is any good or is it providing false information?

Thanks
