    I tested my machine on Shields up and failed on the ICMP echo. I have
    been reading about it and I am getting mixed signals, some say it is bad
    some that it is normal. In any case I dont like it.
    I am using XPPRO, have an SMC Router and a D-link WAP for wireless to
    my other machines, I also use Norton Person Firewall.
    When I check in my router it did receive an unauthorized HTTP access.
    It lists my IP address (outside the router) followed by :88.
    The next line says Snork it gives an IP address than my IP Address both
    followed by :135. I am guessing the numbers are ports that are scanned.
    When I tried to pull up the IP address that was listed as the sender of
    the attack (which would have had to have been the Shields UP site) I get
    nothing, meaning it just stays on the page I am on. I tried it with the
    shields up page open and it stays the same and I tried it with google
    open and it stays the same.
    Can anyone give me any advice, I have been googling forever and cant
    seem to get it resolved.

    If the only port that shields up failed was ICMP, it sounds pretty good
    to me. If you can't stop it anywhere else, set up a DMZ machine to a
    non-existent address on your router. That will cause all incoming calls
    to go to the non-existent address, including ICMP.

    Thanks for the reply,

    I have access to 40 IP's through the router, it is probably the same for
    most I have through .40. Do you mean I should set up an IP
    that is not being used for example and put it in one of the
    DMZ spots?

    That is what I mean :)
