Hello people!Just thought I'd warn you guys.......I ran a port scan today on the MTNL range of ips 59.182.*.*, to see how many people were online. I checked a few ips, and the default passowords were still the same......so I could get into the admin page of the router with the default password!!I could have easily checked out their username/password and logged on to the net with their accounts!Just thought I'd warn you guys to change yours :)Adwait

I guess you would need some software to do it on windows. I am on Linux, so I can just use nmap.

I can't really reccomend any, since its been quite a while since I used Windows. But you could try www.download.com, theres bound to be software there.

No there isnt...........not unless they have a server configured, in which case you would be able to see the shared files only.
