Packet filtering in Win2000

by Guido Corleone In reply to help closing and opening ...

These settings are specific to each network card that you have installed on your system. So go to the properties of the network card you wish to edit. Then choose the 'TCP/IP Protocol' and click [Properties]. Click [Advanced], then Click the 'Options' tab. There you can configure 'TCP/IP Filtering' which I hope is what you were looking for.
The NETSTAT command may not give you exactly what you need. You should probably download an IP toolkit of some kind which includes a TCP/UDP port scanner.
Also, if this system has a dedicated connection to the Internet, you can go to and get a security scan performed on your system. It will list most open ports and vulnerabilities for each, as well as solutions.
