Open Source Firewall
Just as a boredom project I am thinking about writting an open source (assembly of course) firewall for windows 9x/nt. This is mostly going to be just to get me back used to programming the windows API in assembly (masm32 of course). I was thinking about actually opening ports 1-1024 (I know sounds strange huh?) and sending a text message to an "attacker" saying "Your activity has been logged, Please have a nice day", Just in general does anyone know what type of responce this would get from users, would most people use this, or leave it on the "closed down" option? Again this is for software that I have not even started coding yet, but am in the 'brainstorming" stage.
Any discussion or suggestions for a firewall are 1000000% welcome.
