Yes I known. That's why I'm asking you how can I make portsnap through the cron and opening firewall just before he going to make the connection. Of course I can hack the portsnap to make he don't try to see if it's fork by cron or not. But it's not a good idea IMHO, what's happen if all person do that ?
