Why not? And, ports are used every time I do something on the net.
Statefull firewall would be the perfect filter for in and out packets.
I see implemented iptables as stateless, since it does not fulfils
netfilter specs. Some modules are missing. Would be nice if nokia
could provide us/me/user with those modules and info, what is changed
in this instance.
I use ipfw on my box and cannot imagine going in the void w/o this. Some
says openbsd ip is even better. So, I like to have my 770 as any
other machine, for mail, web, ssh, telnet... I really need firewall
for this. Making new environment could be fun, but not now. Why not
having repository for kernel modules and libraries for (in this example)
scirocco? For some time I will for sure remove some files for localisa-
tion, some graphical stuff, when I use only console versions etc. On
this place could lay modules I like. When you abandon 770 for good I
will recompile the kernel et alia, but no need for it now.
Why all of people in nokia opose to firewall? You put it on the box.
Lets make it fully functional, please.
