    Packet filtering firewall question

    I have recently become interested in packet filtering firewalls and I was curious as to what traffic is commonly let in and out. (IP?)
    How does one exploit this and what are ways to patch it? Thank you for your time.

    Most firewalls have by default traffic allowed and blocked.
    You can find this by looking at the options of your firewall.
    Their you can see what s blocked and what s not by default.
    Some have mutch used appz preconfig. by default[ie,icq]like Agnitum s firewall Outpost.

    Your os needs updates[windows-update]
    Or you can use Bigfix from bigfix.com[free]and cnet catchup[also free]


    Goodluck and have a safe trip in cyberspace.

    Everything has exploits. Not everything has patches. It really depends on the product you buy.

    Packet filters just close ports.
    they are the real old style firewalls.
    Even though the services run, you can't connect to the port..
