[Dshield] little experiment

Interesting: My NATing router/firewall is  a Netgear FVS318 v1. NOTHING is supposed to be open.
The Linux boxes in my tiny network do not listen on those ports.
  Probes to both ports 53  and 137 *DO* show up in the router log as being dropped,  137 very often.

 From your scan report:


Note! This scanner tends to show firewalled UDP ports as open!

Interesting ports on xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx.adsl.snet.net
53/udp  open  domain?
137/udp open  netbios-ns?

Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 31.035 seconds

Quick guide to the results:
Filtered Ports: These ports are filtered by your firewall. The scanner can not tell if the port is open or 
closed. This is usually best.
Open Ports: Some server is accepting connections at this port, and no firewall is blocking it. This is bad, 
unless you want to permit access to this server.
Closed Ports: Your computer reset the connection as the scanner attempted to connect. Typically, this means 
that no firewall is protecting this port, but nothing is listening to accept any connections. This is ok, but 
it does make scanning your system faster.
