    Dear all,

    I have had someone come and tell me that its standard practice to allow outgoing ports 1025 – 65535 TCP and UDP to be open.

    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
