Any time I build a machine I always run F-Port over it and include the results in the documentation.

F-Port is a utility that will show you what ports are open and which application 'owns' them.

Very, very useful.

An old favourite is NC, This truly is the 'swiss-army' knife of IP.

I believe in these types of articles and give tec. republic a big thumbs up for continiuing the war of information theft deterent straigies.
I really only have one magior thing that I feel I must point out and that is, perhaps you should go into more depth without makeing your article spots to much lager.
Also to supplement this I would also like to say we as the consmers of such products free or not, take more time to know about the tools we are implementing.(even if not our department to know)
Once agin thanks and continue on.
