Is this really true? All of the ports listed above are used by LAN protocols that were never intended to communicate directly across backbone networks -- that's why VPNs were invented. Or, is your argument that some system somewhere MIGHT ignore the offical port numbers allocated by IANA and try to pass some other kind of traffic there instead? > Perhaps set the rules to permit and log first, let it run for awhile > and then see what you'll be missing. Yep, this is always good advice. But don't give up just because of some naysayers rolling out the usual FUD. In the real world, security for the many outweighs the extremely unlikely edge cases of the few. -- J.D.
