I was originally using windows firewall, the one that comes with xp service pack 2. I did a port scan with hackerwatch and it found 2 open ports. I then changed the firewall to Zonealarm and did another port scan and it found the same 2 open ports. The 2 ports open are 80 (HTTP) and 143 (HTTPS). Should these ports be open, or should I try another firewall? Thanks.

check out those two pages for info on those ports.
