I was refering specifically to end user workstations. For example home
machines on dial up or broadband connections.
A lot of broadband providers already prohibit running servers and block
certain inbound ports (eg 21 and 80).
*shrug* just seems like it would make more sense to block all incoming
Wouldn't that be faster than inspecting the destination port against two
I don't know how these operators do their blocking..
