You do not want to close this port as this is the port used for, amongst other things, http traffic, i.e. web pages. If you block this port then you wont get any web traffic at all ont his port so no web pages. It is perfectly normal for norton to report this. Norton will monitor other ports and will advise you if it sees anything suspiciouse.

hope this helps :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?
