secure private ip


So I was just on www.auditmypc.com and did the firewall test. They were able to see my private ip address. What can I do to secure my internal ip ? I'm running on FC3 with a 2.6 kernel

Hey there,

They use java script to get this, disabling java script will prevent this, however at the cost
of usability.

which internal ip? you have a router and an internal nic? Your internal is secure from any website and outside probes if setup right, but your external is public... you can turn off ping requests etc... but what is the question exactly?

Regards
Richard
