Ping Port

Evening all,

I have just scanned my system with Symantec online and the results have shown that my Ping Port is open, is this very dangerous?

I have had my DSL connection slow down slightly now and again and my MSN Messenger connection disconnects after a few mins, see my other post below for more info on this problem.

I have now idea what kind of port this is and what (if any) damage it can do to my computer?

Anyone advise?

Thanks, Mat.

Hi, run ShieldsUp, this will give you a much more comprehensive check, and will also explain about Ports, open or otherwise.
