    I have been playing around with this firewall and denied such things as:

    DHCP
    DNS
    VPN
    Broadcasts
    Ping and tracert out
    Ping and tracert in
    internet group and management protocol
    other ICMP packets


    I have also denied in NIPS

    High medium and low priority



    Like I said I am just playing around and based on my limited knowledge denying access to as much as possible is better protection. Have I instead compromised my firewall so I am not as protected?


    BTW, I run my internet connection through Anonymizer Total Net Shield.

    I think if you did all that you mentioned above, then you have compromised your internet connection to the point where it won't work.... You need DNS and DHCP to function properly, and you should allow Pings Out as well...
