Hi all.

In order to play a multiplayer game I need to open ports on both my firewall and router, and hey presto, it works and I can even create servers.

However, is this a security risk? I read on this forum that all ports should be "stealthed", but when I open them on the router+firewall a few ports come up on the GRC port scan as "closed" as expected instead of stealthed.

Can I just leave these settings in place or do I just have to change the settings everytime before and after I play, which would just be plain annoying.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,
jibber.
