    Hi gang,

    Just wondering... I have ZoneAlarm Pro installed and I get a port scan
    alert (it blocks them) on port 80. It says computer is safe, but I
    noticed this doesn't happen when I have the router connected.

    Do you think that means the router is blocking it anyway?

    Yes - the router will probably be using NAT, and if it wasn`t expecting
    traffic "back" relating to something your machine asked for, it will
    typically just "drop" the packet without ever letting it near your
    machine.
