Re: Fwd: SlashDot: "Comcast Gunning for NAT Users"
You know, if I had a cable modem I would have some sort of firewall router just to preserve my peace of mind. I might even run NAT on the LAN side. So the question is this: can a customer use a firewall for *one* computer? If so, how can the cableco determine whether there is a single computer or two computers or more behind a firewall? I really don't think they can except in cases of egregious abuse. David Leonard ShaysNet On Thu, 31 Jan 2002, Eric A. Hall wrote: > > > "Eric A.
