Hi all!

Question from a beginner:
I'd like to make a secure firewall configuration on a Netgear RO318
DSL Router Firewall.
By default there are some services enabled. I have blocked most of
them.
At one point I am really unsure and don't know what it means.

Services enabled:
Any(TCP)
Any(UDP)
...
...
...

Does that mean that all TCP and UDP services that are'nt blocked have
free entrance through the firewall?

Thanks in advance for response
greetings

Chrissie

Hi, I don't know this model, but I'm workiing with a netgear router
firewall too, the solution is in the order of application of rules: with
these rules you allow anything but services you've already blocked.
