Yea I tried it and I'm all secure too.

I use Kerio Personal Firewall.

Actually before the test began I had ultimate security, I had javascipt disabled. :thumbsup: So the test never started, lol. :flowers:

I tried it again without my firewall and I'm still secure. Must be my router, or RoadRunner must be using a NAT.
