OK folks, I have a question for you, as I do not claim to be an expert on wireless stuff.

Say that I have a setup something like this:

Several PCs.....>hub/router.....>gateway......>phone line.......>ISP........>internet

Say that the hub/router has ports 161 and 4567 permanently open, what security issues (if any) does this present?

As far as I am aware these ports are not required for anything that I do, and if they were, they would only be open whilst I was doing it, rather than permanently?

In case you are wondering, NO! I cannot close those two ports, the hub management software won't let me.

I can think of a workaround, but it would be a gross hack

I await your replies with interest
