Re: How Does a Firewall Work

yes you rite the function of firewall is basically to protects internet networked system from intended antagonistic invasion that can effect in information or data corruption or failed or internet service. Firewall can be a hardware device or a software program that performs operation for a secure computer.it should have at a minimum of 2 network interface, first one is for network that what we need to protect, and second for the network it is uncovered to the network .A firewall sits at connection end among the both networks, typically for confidential network and a open network like Internet. The most basic firewalls was a simple router.

Re: How Does a Firewall Work

firewall is nothing it is just a system planned to avoid illegal access to private internet network. Firewalls can be used as both hardware and software, or also as a arrangement of both.

Firewall are divided into different types :-
• Packet filter: that only allows or restrict the network at packet level.
•Application gateway: it is implemented only in applications level like Telnet and FTP servers.
• Circuit-level gateway: implemented when there is a UDP or TCP network connection is establish.
•Proxy server: it is combination of all firewall that filters data at the all level including packets level and leaving the network. It also hides the network address.

Re: How Does a Firewall Work

anybody who have authority to have a private or confidential network that is linked to a open network requires a firewall protection. Person who connect with a solo computer system to Internet must have a own firewall some of users feels that no malicious trespasser could be break into computer system. Firewalls frequently have NAT functions with them, and the hosts computer system is protected at the back at a firewall usually got addresses in the confidential address range, Firewalls often got such functionality to cover the IP address of confined computer hosts.
