Open Ports

  Johny C 22:39 05 Mar 2004

I have just done a security check on my system from symantec, and it has listed a couple of ports which are open, Is there anyway i can close these ports.

I am running Nortons Internet security and its been updated. so i am under the impression that this would close any open ports.

Hope somebody can help

Cheers John

Hi Johny C. I'm no expert on this subject, but my understanding is that the opening and closing of ports is controlled by your software applications. The only way you can have any control is by using a firewall. In this way you have can give or refuse permission for the applications to have access to the internet.
