Howdy All,

I am very new to the concept of network testing.  Currently, I run my Intranet (2 desktops, a laptop, and a handful of smartphones) behind a standard router/modem, and utilizing firewalls and anti-virus/malware tools.  But I cannot shake the thought that I might be dropping the ball somewhere...

1.  Is there something I can do to test and see if I have any vulnerabilities I can shore-up?
2.  Are there ways I can check and see if  others are attempting to gain access to my home network from the outside?

Thanks ahead o' time guys!  Keep up the good work!

Uncle Gabe

BTW - Where in Land Sakes, did you get that OLD avatar???  PLEASE, let me update it!

You must have had an account with someone else that uses the same forum system, or you reused a login account.  Once you hit I think it's 5 posts you'll be able to edit your profile info.

 

As for testing your home network, and devices;
