      Thank's all for your swift insight ans as for the post by john13729, It just shows you that if you look for something to hard you can't see the wood for the trees!!
      I couldn't believe I had not seen the disable ping requaests
      Thanx for pointing it out to me!!!

      I still have the problem of these open ports though

      Results from scan of ports: 21, 23, 53, 80, 1863, 1864, 4443,
      5190, 5431, 5566, 30005

      6 Ports Open
      0 Ports Closed
      5 Ports Stealth
      ---------------------
      11 Ports Tested

      NO PORTS were found to be CLOSED.

      Ports found to be STEALTH were: 21, 23, 53, 80, 5431

      Other than what is listed above, all ports are OPEN.

      TruStealth: FAILED - NOT all tested ports were STEALTH,
      - NO unsolicited packets were received,
      - NO Ping reply (ICMP Echo) was received.

      How do I go about closing these especially port 30005 which is unknown protocol even to GRC ShieldsUp????

      Pretty much all routers hold a few ports open - for example, the Sky Netgear V1 has 4443, 5566, 1864, 5190 for various reasons (e.g. 5190 is ReAim ALG, such is/was the power of AOL). As I said before, with NAT not routing those ports to any LAN IP, that shouldn't be a problem plus you are using a personal firewall.

      Also, I suspect you'll find that if you change the UPnP status, some of those ports will close and others will open!

      But, if you are at all concerned, log into the router admin pages and set up new firewall rules blocking traffic to/from these ports.

      Good point re UPnP - is there any chance that your Ubuntu is using that to force open any of those ports?

      I am on the DG934 router with a Mac and my stealth status is 100% I simply do not exist So I'm surprised that Ubuntu on a Sagem would not return a similar result - or do you have any PCs on your LAN that could be using UPnP as Saturday has suggested could force open ports?
      It's not that I'm so smart, it's just that I stay with problems longer.

      Hey all.
      Thank's again for all your help. Im a little closer to gaining a more indepth understanding of my problem. But I am still hunting for the user guide/manual for my sagem F@st 2504 Router.
