i'm looking for a free software to surf the web anonymously, with features similar to the pay version of Anonymizer.com. Any idea?

I've run a test on http://analyze.privacy.net which states:

Firewall Test

The following ports were checked: 554, 1755, 443, 80
Out of the above ports, the following are open and permitting outbound traffic: 554,1755,443,80

Firewall status: NOT PRESENT (you may have a firewall, but it is not configured to block these ports from outbound traffic)


what does this suggest? How may I block this ports?
I'm running ZoneAlarm free

Make sure the Internet Security slider is set to High in ZoneAlarm. This will block all ports unless you have some programs set in Program Control that require these ports to be open.

It could be that their proxy server is down. Try uninstalling and have a go with a different one.

I don't use these programs. They slow down your internet connection, and I don't see a reason for hiding your IP address. At the end of the day if you are doing something illegal, it can still be traced back to your real IP, and back to you.

I'm more concerned of online privacy than trying to put myself in jail
how else could I hide information from being obtained when online?
