I have a cable modem and I'm using 4.9 as a NAT router for my home network. I have 4 rules in my ipfw config. The first enables NAT and the last is 65000 allow any to any.
In between I ha 2 rules to deny access to ports 53 and 110 on the Internet side. That's all. Here's my thinking: I use inetd.conf to enable only the services I want, therefore the ports on which those services are listening I would want open. The two other ports I want to filter on the WAN side are filtered by the rules above. All the other ports are closed, anyway, so why spend time debugging an elaborate rule set? _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
