Port 80 is used by your browser to access the internet, if you close it you won't be able to use the internet. This gives more info: click here

Just checked Shields Up! and probed my Port 80 and it is stealthed. Same for Ports 81, 82, 443, 8080,8090.

In fact full All Service Test shows all my Ports as Stealthed.

So it can be stealthed. I am using ZA, which firewall are you using Robbiecollie?

I went to ShieldsUp this morning and found that I needed to change to 'Normal' setting as I had 'allowed all' and my port 139 was open. After the change passed the test with flying colours. Just checked my port 80 from Valvegrid's link and it was stealthed. I'm using free 'Sygate' firewall on XP home. HTH TR

I've just tried mine and its stealthed.

When I turn the fire wall off it says its closed.

I supposed its stelthed till the browser operates then it opens to let traffic in.
