Recheck using some other firewall test.

For example, you can usehttp://nmap-online.com/

To check port 1028, select custom scan, and for your IP from this header
command should look something like this

-sS -sU -P0 -p 1028 66.102.80.103

Do I need to get a hardware firewall (router)?

Router is a good idea.

Thanks! I went there and got this:

Scan Result

Nmap Options: -sS -sU -P0 -p 1028 66.102.80.103

Starting Nmap 4.11 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap ) at 2007-08-31
19:16 Central Europe Daylight Time
Interesting ports on cbl-66-102-80-103.wtccommunications.ca
(66.102.80.103):
PORT STATE SERVICE
1028/tcp open unknown
1028/udp open|filtered ms-lsa

Nmap finished: 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 2.922 seconds


So apparently it really is open.

I haven't made an exception for any ports in my Win XP firewall
settings: only for the internet apps that I use regularly.

If I get a router, will my port 1028 then show as closed?

Thank you!
