i have a question for you.
 
i know a lot about computers, but i am only a beginner when it comes to the subject of networking.
i heard that you have better protection if you are in "stealth" mode.
 
what does that mean?
but more importaintly, HOW do you get INTO "stealth" mode?

sincerely,

YO quietman7, what's up bro?
 
thanks a lot man.
yes, that's EXACTLY what i was talking about.
:orange: how you can become "invisible" to hckers.
 
but i heard there is also a second level of defence as well that is ALSO termed as
"stealth mode"
it involves your router and the use of ICEMs or something (ICMP?)
I DONt know how to do this, but when i become an advanced level security,
i WILL be able to do this, and i will use it.
 
however, it involves "knowing" how to get into your router setting though....
 
:football: SECURITY
