Re: blocking kazaa

I agree,

In every firewall manual its explained that a good firewall should allow only certain traffic and always block/drop the rest...

He seems not to be doing so.

You can set the default policy to DROP,
and later open only the ports that you need to make the conection.

I do this im my box and worked fine.



|Hi there,
|I got a trouble in my network while trying to block Kazaa.
|I tried to drop port 1214 with this rule:
|iptables -A FORWARD --dport 1214 -j DROP
|but this doesn't work. so I did sniffing to see what kind of packets and
|ports kazaa uses and I saw that it searches for servers in different ports.
|later, I read in various texts around the net, but all recommend to block
|port 1214 and kazaa site. this probably worked in version 1.
|how could I block kazaa, since I need accept connections in high ports?
|sorry for the bad english.
