    I am running V1.21 with a WRT54G. Under Classification outbound I notice Tomato defaults port 80 and 443 as opened. I am concerned about the security risks associated with port 443 opened. Being a newbe to the routing world please be kind and explain if I need to be worried about this. Can I be attacked with this setup? Should I configure something else to protect my network PC's from these ports activities? I have looked around and cannot find info about this.

    qos on these ports simply gives priority to services using these ports (i.e. when surfing the web on http(80)/https(443)), it does not mean the ports are physically open to the public.

    if you wanna open up internal ports, check out the port forwarding section.

    does it matter that I have DMZ on? I am running a webcam which is why I did this. I used grc.com to test my network and of course all my ports are no longer stealth mode, so I am visible. I would prefer to remain off the radar as much as possible. I'm now located in China and get a little nervous running an IP cam here. I also don;t need to get hacked.

    Using DMZ for a webcam is not ideal. You should find the port the webcam uses and use the port forward section to forward the single port and turn DMZ off

    that makes sense. I'll turn it off and port forward.
