    Basic Firewall tutorial.

    Basic Firewall tutorial.

    The number ONE all time best hacking tool that absolutely can NOT be done without, is your mind; and learning to look at a problem from all angles and even after finding a solution to a problem trying to arrive at the same solution using different means to arrive at the same conclusion of solution.

    The same tool (your mind) is also the best protection against hack attempts, this will always be the fight between minds and the strongest will win, atleast temporary since the struggle always will continue.

    But it's always wise to use good tools aswell and that is what this basic tutorial is all about.

    To save space have I attached the tutorial instead of post it in this forum.

    Its a nice place a bit boring during the winter though. But in the summer its just a lovely place with new happenings every day (lots of festivals and sport events) .

    You might have added "pf" to the list of free firewalls... Pf is the replacement for ipfilter on OpenBSD (3.0 and up) because of licensing conflicts...

    Thanks everybody !

    Thanks for the suggestion ammo I'll add "Pf" in he next update if I can find any good info somewere, do you have any good links to share, would it make it a bit easier for me .

    I have tried to cover as wide area as possible but I can't provide a complete list over firewalls since there are to many of them out there. I only hopes that I dont have forgotten to many of the major vendors .

    It's a good beggining, I think, and I found the list of different products very useful.

    With regards to the description, I think a lot of explanation was left out that could be added. I'd encourage you to add more and more to the explanations, but a good start indeed.
    It doesn\'t matter how much you dress up a turd and make it pretty, it still came out of your ass.
