Some thoughts

by spirce In reply to Firewall Configuration Ch ...

If you wanna fast way, stealth is the thing for you.
If you want to play little bit more with the settings, make a network policy for your home or office network so no one else can access into your computer (it means that you will make a network range only for those computer that are connected to yours), next - make rules for incoming and outgoing tcp or ip or udp protocols, if you have any programs like torrent software, you should make some ports open for that software so you can download in full speed. And you should copy the list of known BAD pages that comes on the net.
I think this would help.
