    Thanks for the link, I think this is a little to involved for beginners, as this goes into explaining the network "layers", but somthing that could possibly be added for the intermediate/advanced user.

    I'd agree - this is more like "Introduction to Firewalls for Network Professionals Who Understand the OSI 7-Layer Model But Have Been on Planet Mars for the Last Seven Years". If you know enough about networking for that article to be an easy read, you'd almost certainly know firewalls inside-out so this is more a case of an article being targeted at the wrong level. Much of what it discusses also applies more to "enterprise firewalls" (e.g. application proxying) rather than personal ones.

    Topics like Stateful Packet Inspection have already been mentioned for an expert-level FAQ so a link to this article may be appropriate in a "More Information" list there, but a proper introduction needs to be easier on the brain. ;)
