You want it to be stealthed. If its closed, your firewall is not
configred correctly. If its open, then it is not secure.
I've found that there are usually two things you will need to add to
the firewall exception list on some computers. The GmoteServer.exe and
Lets check your firewall settings.

GmoteServer. If it is not there, lets add it.
a. Click the Add Program button. a new window will appear.

it is not there, you will need to add it.
a. Click the Add Program Button, A new window will appear.
Click the Browse button. Browse to the Javaw.exe. Every system is
slightly different on the location. Try looking at C:
\program files\java. from here you will see a folder(s) of the java
version you have.
it will be similiar to "jre1.6.0_07" if there is more than
one folder here, select the one with the highest version number.

10. Apply the Firewall Settings
Lets check to see if port 8889 is being used by another program. Try
this first when the Gmote Server is NOT running
1. open a command window.
2. type in netstat
3. look in the Local Address field for an IP followed by ":8889"
4. If you see that there and GmoteServer is NOT running, then you will
need to find out what program is using that port.
5. If you do not see the port there, Open the GmoteServer program and
run "Netstat -a". You should now see the port and the stat
will be listed as "LISTENING"
If it is listed as Listening, try to connect your G1 now.
hope this helps.
