    I just purchased iNet. Upon scanning my network it gave me a list of Service Types. One of them is "windows file sharing" and is using port 445.

    I know little about network configurations and want to make sure that this is a normal Service Type.

    Thank you.

    Yes, port 445 is used for Windows shares. It's normal if you are using that feature. You probably are.

    Hello mfram,

    I'm not using it intentionally. Would you please explain what it does or enables?

    Many thanks!
