Perhaps someone else has an answer for this.|
Nothing in coderman's short answers have made this clear to me. The answers look rather confusing to me, sorry.
How could someone remotely access port 9051 on my computer protected by a physical firewall, when the firewall is blocking access to that port?
Someone else that knows more about this, please answer and explain.
What are the risks running a version pre 0.1.2.16 or pre .0.2.0.4alpha if a server/client is protected by a physical firewall?

Is this correct?what do you mean directly? your firewall protects against remote connections, but direct connections can be made from localhost.If this is correct, then the chance of getting attacked behind a physical firewall is very low, right?no. best regards,
