Stealth Mode Failing

I have switched my firewall (version 10.3) to stealth mode (the slider in the Advanced settings is on "Stealth"). However, when I scan my box using ShieldsUp (https://www.grc.com/x/ne.dll?rh1dkyd2), I am told that with the exception of port 0 all other ports return the status "Closed".

How can I force all my ports into a Stealth mode?

RE: Stealth Mode Failing


If you change the McAfee Firewall settings to Stealth then your computer should be completely invisible for all other networks.

So, we don’t have to make any other specific change in order to close the rest of the ports. happy
