    blocking ports

    I just went to symantec.com and did their port scan and found that a number of my ports are open, i already have a firewall and im behind a router, im wondering if there is and way to close ports of with like dos or windows or something.

    btw these are the ports that are open, is this serious?
    ICMP
    21
    135
    445
    5000

    21 is ftp server (are you running one ?)
    135 is MS RPC and can be disabled by following the url:

    445 SMB over TCP and
    5000 UPnP can be disabled by following this:
