Thanks Pep,
I did use the personal firewall and set it for modem masg in "reject
all connections" thing. I think that is right and should take care of
it, but not sure yet. I would still like to figure out how to close
those open ports though. There must be a simple command to do so or
setting you can change in one of the config files?
