What is a Reputable Firewall?


All guest devices are required to be running a reputable firewall set up to block unsolicited incoming connections. A firewall will act as a gate keeper to the internet for your system. Some such firewall programs are:

  • Windows Firewall
  • Linux IPTables (Ubuntu UFW)
  • OSX Application Firewall

With no firewall there is nothing between hackers on the internet and your computer. A firewall will try to keep out unwanted traffic to keep your system safe.
