I set up pf. firewall as you suggested and ran "shields up" from

This tells me that port 1024 is open and ports 1025, 1026 and 1027 are closed and are all being used by "microsoft generic service host".
GhostBSD is the only OS on the computer and I have never had Microsoft installed on it.

Having looked in /etc/services port 1024, 1026 and 1027 are not listed, 1025 is assigned twice to
blackjack 1025/tcp #network blackjack
blackjack 1025/udp #network blackjack

How has "microsoft generic service host" got onto the system and how can I get rid of it?

Hey kenw !
Would you please share your /etc/rc.conf ? Perhaps see what services are on?
I personaly had to change settings that were written by default from the GhostBSD installation.
Currently not on GhostBSD mashine, i think i changed the sendmail, cups, ntp, keymap, ifconfig - DCHP and a few more lines.

I liked the suggestion above about sharing pf configurations in the forum, perhaps a firewall section. I would also like to see a rc.conf file share section.
