    I have a Verizon Fios G1100 Gateway.

    When I run GRC ShieldsUp (http://www.grc.com) all of my ports are completely stealthed except port 445 which shows as CLOSED. Is there a way to completely stealth this port on the G1100?

      There probably isn’t much you can do except to make sure you have changed the router password and turned remote admin off.
      If Verizon have left a hole at port 445 you know who is at fault.

      cheers, Paul

      likely how they do firmware update, which I will never get since my g3100 is behind my fire wall, may have to work on that….


      Just because you don't know where you are going doesn't mean any road will get you there.

        I also have a (Verizon) Fios G3100 since last week, when a Verizon technician came and replaced an older router. This new one came with the fire wall set pretty tight by default. I imagine that it still allows for some upgrades. I’ll look into that.

        Thanks for passing the word about this.

      I have changed the default password. I have auto update turned off, but would like the port to drop incoming requests. It is closed but of course it is still visible in a port scan
