How visible is my PC (Gradwell?)

    Bit of a long shot. I remember using a service, which I read about on
    one of the Demon groups, to test how visible and vulnerable my PC was to
    the rest of the Internet. I'm sure it was on the Gradwell site.

    Does that ring any bells? I cannot find anything now, but that is
    probably me using the wrong terms. The service checked ports etc.,
    whether my PC responded with lots of green and red boxes, from memory.

    Anyone know what I am talking about, whether it exists and where? This
    may go back to the days of Richard Ashton.

    Thanks!

    I believe you are referring to ShieldsUp! on grc.com:
