Firewall blocks all incoming
connections - Done. Which is essentially what people on this list
_believe_ NAT is doing currently.

It seems a lot of people are very much confusing the functionality of a
router,
a firewall, and NAT.


Say what?

I have difficulty believing that most (or even many) folks on this list confuse
NAT with a firewall. Or think that NAT blocks all incoming connections. Or
that a router IS a firewall.

Btw, seems that this discussion has moved to the religious debate stage. Can
we at least hold off the snark?
