[access-uk] Re: can i turn off my firewall

Hi Ray,

Are you saying routers don't monitor outbound stuff?  They certainly do.
SPI is a great help here.

All the best

Hi Jackie,

I don't think there is anything superior about my knowledge, but it is a
contentious issue all over the web.  From what I have read in the past, I
don't think you need any longer worry about software firewals if you are
behind a good, and I stress, good NAT router.

All the best

Steve

I bough to your superior knowledge Steve, but I've always been told to use
whatever is going as well as the router for added protection.
