Test your firewall

Here is two easy ways to see is your firewall working like it should be.
So first we test your outcoming and then incoming connections...

1. Lets try software Leak Test (current version 1.2)
Download it from here: http://www.grc.com/lt/leaktest.htm
Just run it, and if your firewall can see it = good. If not, you might want to turn your firewall on!

2. And now we go to GRC`s Shields UP! -site to test incoming ports.
Go there from here: https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?bh0bkyd2
When you push Proced your browser might ask that do you want to send some info, just say yes.

Now we should at least test Windows File Sharing and Common Ports to see are we protected.

And this point it might be a good idea to say that firewall what came with Windows XP`s Service Pack 2 is not good one... So you want to get better firewall (like Norton or ZoneAlarm).
