Re: Hosts.all/Hosts.deny vs. a firewall?

So far I have the following setup:




ALL: my_work.domain

My intention is to prevent everyone from the 'outside' from reaching my box. I do realize that anyone in my_work.domain would also be able to get at it.

Is this secure?


If this is indeed correct could someone tell me why I would need/want a firewall

/me considers the two attempted port scans against this computer this weekend

I wouldn't connect to the 'net without one. YMMV.
