  1. Fabian: Thanks for your explanation of stealth, which is further amplified here. I remain a satisfied Emsisoft customer after migrating back to using EAM with a stealth standalone firewall that provides traffic logging and connection blocking notifications. I prefer seeing which ingoing & outgoing connection attempts are blocked. Good luck!
  2. In my screenshot, Windows Firewall is concurrently reported as "off" in one menu and reported as "on" in the other menu. At that time, my running a Shields Up! security scan resulted in my ports shown as fully stealth. After turning Windows Firewall "off" in the menu where it was previously indicated as being "on", then Shields Up! showed my computer as having mostly closed ports, a few stealth ports, and a few open ports. The results of the second Shields Up! scan indicated to me that Windows Firewall and the EIS fiewall component were both operational during the first Shields Up! scan.
  3. To ensure that only the EIS Firewall is running, Jerky may want to go to the "Turn Windows Firewall on or off" link on the left side of the menu in his screenshot and verify the "on" or "off" status of Windows Firewall, Per this Windows Vista Menu screenshot, I've experienced two firewalls running when Windows Firewall is reported as being "off". Good luck!
  4. I was able to determine that my previously observed all-stealthed-ports condition was the result of Windows Firewall being turned on, even while the Windows Vista Security Center reported that the EIS Firewall is "on" and Windows Firewall is "off". Turning off Windows Firewall using its Settings window yields the limited stealthed ports shown in the below Shields Up report. I withdraw my previously stated confidence in the Firewall component of EIS 10.0.0.5165 Beta -- I'm not feeling good about it anymore. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- GRC Port Authority Report created on UTC: 2015-04-20 at 14:02:16 Results from scan of ports: 0-1055 6 Ports Open 1043 Ports Closed 7 Ports Stealth --------------------- 1056 Ports Tested Ports found to be OPEN were: 80, 1025, 1026, 1027, 1028, 1031 Ports found to be STEALTH were: 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 445, 593 Other than what is listed above, all ports are CLOSED. TruStealth: FAILED - NOT all tested ports were STEALTH, - NO unsolicited packets were received, - A PING REPLY (ICMP Echo) WAS RECEIVED. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  5. I'm wondering if any of the recent EIS 10.0.0.5165 Beta updates that required restarts might have involved changes to the Firewall component? Just noticed that my laptop is back to showing only partially stealthed ports when using GRC's Shields Up port scan site... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- GRC Port Authority Report created on UTC: 2015-04-20 at 03:36:41 Results from scan of ports: 0-1055 6 Ports Open 1043 Ports Closed 7 Ports Stealth --------------------- 1056 Ports Tested Ports found to be OPEN were: 80, 1025, 1026, 1027, 1028, 1029 Ports found to be STEALTH were: 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 445, 593 Other than what is listed above, all ports are CLOSED. TruStealth: FAILED - NOT all tested ports were STEALTH, - NO unsolicited packets were received, - A PING REPLY (ICMP Echo) WAS RECEIVED. ----------------------------------------------------------------------
  6. Several weeks ago, I got this result using EIS 9 Firewall at "Public" network trust level with a wired cable modem Internet connection to GRC's Shields Up site... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- GRC Port Authority Report created on UTC: 2015-03-18 at 02:41:52 Results from scan of ports: 0-1055 1 Ports Open 1034 Ports Closed 21 Ports Stealth --------------------- 1056 Ports Tested The port found to be OPEN was: 80 Ports found to be STEALTH were: 9, 13, 17, 19, 113, 135, 136, 137, 138, 139, 389, 445, 593, 1002, 1024, 1025, 1026, 1027, 1028, 1029, 1030 Other than what is listed above, all ports are CLOSED. TruStealth: FAILED - NOT all tested ports were STEALTH, - NO unsolicited packets were received, - NO Ping reply (ICMP Echo) was received. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Now, with EIS 10 Beta Firewall at "Public" network trust level with a wired cable modem Internet connection to GRC's Shields Up site, I get this result... ---------------------------------------------------------------------- GRC Port Authority Report created on UTC: 2015-04-13 at 22:22:15 Results from scan of ports: 0-1055 0 Ports Open 0 Ports Closed 1056 Ports Stealth --------------------- 1056 Ports Tested ALL PORTS tested were found to be: STEALTH. TruStealth: PASSED - ALL tested ports were STEALTH, - NO unsolicited packets were received, - NO Ping reply (ICMP Echo) was received. ---------------------------------------------------------------------- Additionally, PC Flank's test yields fully stealthed with EIS 10 Beta Firewall set at Public network trust level... Once again, "Thank You" to the Development Team for this EIS 10 Beta Firewall improvement.
  7. Many thanks to the Development Team for adding full Stealth Mode to the Firewall of EIS Version 10 Beta. It's a confidence builder!
  8. I experienced the same broken-and-slow Internet connection issues after first installing Emsisoft Internet Security, and I noticed that turning off the EIS firewall component fully restored the reliability and speed of my Internet connection. I used Revo Uninstaller to uninstall EIS, then I reinstalled EIS -- but that provided no improvement. The EIS firewall component continued to eratically slow my Internet connection. I had previously been a very happy Emsisoft Anti-Malware user, so this EIS experience was especially surprising to me. I found guidance in the EIS KnowledgeBase about using EmsiClean to fully uninstall Emsisoft products. I repeated the Revo Uninstaller removal of my second install of EIS and followed it up with EmsiClean, which removed a Registry entry shown to be for EAM's configuration, "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Emsi Software GmbH\a-squared". My EmsiClean log file is attached, in case it is useful to Emsi Support Staff. I reinstalled EIS, and the broken-and-slow Internet connection issues were totally gone. Good luck!
