archive is NOT internationalized
but xarchiver is
latest stable version and PET already.
May I suggest to replace archive by archiver?

Does anyone know why the 80 port shows as open when testing the firewall in the latest lucid puppy through the ShieldsUp website? Shouldn't it be stealthed? I know this isn't the apropriate place to ask but i saw this post and just had to ask. Thanks!

Re Xarchiver
Yes, ttuuxxx was very keen on Xarchiver. I had a fondness for Xarchive, and resisted his urging that I change to using Xarchiver.

Well, maybe the time has come to change. Xarchive seems to be a dead project anyway, no development on it for some time.

I have written it down in my "high priority" to-do list (a piece of paper on my desk).

Re firewall
Yeah, but what are you actually testing with Shields Up? Many people use it, but don't realise that it is NOT testing their PC.

For the old days of dialup, fine.

But these days most people are going through some kind of intermediary, such as a router/modem, and it is that that is the frontend to the Internet and what Shields Up is measuring.

Re firewall
Thank you very much for your reply! Well, i was connected through a ZTE MF627 3G modem. When i'm connected through my router there are no open ports showing in ShieldsUP. Again, thank you very much for your reply, but most importantly for all your work in puppy and woof.
