Greetings, all. I am new here and this is my first post. I want to set the firewall but I am a little uncertain about what settings to use. I found this site http://rimuhosting.com/howto/firewall.jsp which gives some pretty specific instructions. I just wondered if anyone here thought this was a good basic set up?
I am running a lamp and will be posting content as soon as I get this settled. I don't think I need dns but I am unclear on the need for smtp or not. I do want to be able to send mail from my applications, I'm just not sure that's the best or intended use of this port or a reason to have it open.
I would add ftp and sftp to the list in the example. I was curious that they used www instead of http, maybe that doesn't matter?
Thanks for your thoughts and feedback.
