H.323 test in ShieldsUP!?

    Dear Guest Visitor → Once you register and log-in:

    This forum does not automatically send notices of new content. So if, for example, you would like to be notified by mail when Steve posts an update to his blog (or of any other specific activity anywhere else), you need to tell the system what to “Watch” for you. Please checkout the “Tips & Tricks” page for details about that... and other tips!

  • Larger Font Styles

    Just a quick heads-up that I've implemented larger font variants of our forum's light and dark page styles. You can select the style of your choice by scrolling to the footer of any page here. This might be more comfortable (it is for me) for those with high-resolution displays where the standard fonts, while permitting a lot of text to fit on the screen, might be uncomfortably small.

Not to take Steve away from SpinRite, but after listening to SN! Podcast #804, I'm wondering if it is an easy thing (like, a few hours of work) to have ShieldsUP! test for H.323 vulnerability.

Or, alternatively, is there a site that people can visit that will test for this? (None found in a quick duckduckgo search.)

Sadly, ShieldsUP! has not been updated in a very very long time. More tests are linked to here

I do not know of an H.323 test. Would be great to have. No matter, if your router supports it, you should be able to disable it. There are screen shots of what this might look like for a handful of routers here

Would be nice to verify that it is disabled though.
