That "Stealth Mode" is a invention by GRC, to sell his crap. You actually
do want the ports to show up as closed. Closed ports is how a machine
without a firewall shows ports that it isn't listening to. Nmap shows
"stealthed" ports as 'filtered'.
But, you can do that by adding "set block-policy drop" to your rules.
The light at the end of the tunnel may be an oncoming dragon.
