telling someone your firewall setup is like telling someone what type of car I have....
At work I have a ASA 5510. At home I have a ea6500 with some qos based on device, certain devices that stream get priority over pc's.
o how it is setup, like every other standard firewall. I have some ports open for email servers, ftp, www, and https.
go ahead and hack away at my networks...what exactly have I given out that pertains to anything having to do with who I am or what my address is for you to do such a thing? I can even give you a firewall config if you want out of my asa...I will mask the external ips...again what exactly would that give anyone trying to get in my network...absolutely positively nothing.
Spoken like someone who isn't an SME in network security.
I spent years working security for various folks...government and big corporations.
There are certain things I will discuss when it comes to security, and certain things I won't.
The hardware that protects my personal network? That's not one of the things I will talk about...again due to the number of attempts I have from people trying to get in...in this case any information is too much information.

I get hits about 100 times a minute with bots trying to get in, probably more, haven't checked in a while.
This isn't your usual bot attacks. I actually have specific folks that are not a fan of me that love to try to screw around with my stuff on a regular basis.
I've had to ream several large corporations out for handing out my PII like it's candy.
