Internet Gateway > Internet Connection'  LIVE CALL WHAT IS THIS  FOR ??

    Question by:


    I am running XP Home edition 2002 sp2

    in my Network connections I found an
    'Internet Gateway > Internet Connection'
    which i am sure i have never seen before

    when i viewed the properties of the  'Internet Connection'
    icon it had a 'settings' button

    clicking this opened a 'services' dialog which had 3 entries

    livecall ( 21985 UDP
    livecall ( 36069 TCP
    MsnMsgr ( 4582 UDP

    I unchecked these items and also 'disabled' this interent gateway and my internet still seems to be running fine

    I do have SKYPE and MSN installed and i use SKYPE for VoiP
     Can anyone tell me whether these settings have allowed someone to access my PC ?

    Good Question?
