How come so many ports are listening?
I'm running ICS on my w2k_machine, and my XP_machine connects through it.
I have a firewall installed.
But whyare all these ports listening?

Can anyone help me out?I've turned off all the services on the machine that
i don't need.
I'm running a webserver, ftpserver, mailserver, webmail and a remote access
program. (ports: 21, 25, 80, 110, 443, 8080 - these should be the only open
I've disabled netbios on the outgoing NIC, my computer is all up-to-date

Any ideas?

Thans in advance?
