I'd suggest upgrading to mandrake 10. I remember the older versions being a bit glitchy with shorewall whle mdk10 shorewall seems better.

I did nothing different, just the same as you are doing, but your's appears broken

There a couple of virus scanners available for linux, and I do recommend you atleast research the issue.

I've been using ClamAV which is free *setup on my mail server, but It can act as a system scanner as well.

It so far has worked pretty much flawlessly.

Do I recommend you spend 100+ on a linux scanner? no
Do I recommend you look into getting something ? yes

I had downloaded GuardDog and extracted the files. But from there I dont know what files I have to click to install or what commands do I have to type to install it.

Will someone please explain.

What did you download? If it was the mdk 9,1 rpm then have you installed it yet?

rpm -i guarddog-2.3.1-1mdk.i586.rpm

Does that work? Can you run guarddog after that? If it runs it appears to be a point and click app where you select the features and zones and ports you want...

Ignore the ShieldsUP thing about "stealthing" ports. This gives no real benefit in the real world ... it is mostly a fantasy that it makes your computer harder to detect. It doesn't. As long as the ports are closed, this is good.
