Three (3) questions immediately come to mind: 1) Is it truely a standard practice? 2) How wise is it to allow all of those outgoing ports to be open? 3) In practice, what should I really be doing? (I am using a hardware appliance from WatchGuard if it makes any difference) Thanks in advance! James Author Posts Viewing 1 post (of 1 total) You must be logged in to reply to this topic.
