[Shorewall-users] Default "reject" ports

	New shorewall user here - I have a question about the ports that 
shorewall is setup to reject instead of drop by default. The ports I am 
concerned about are 113, 135, 139, and 445.

	Do most people leave this as is, or do you put in specific rules to 
DROP  so that the ports are stealth? I was going to just add the rules, 
but thought I'd see if anyone knows of any reasons why I shouldn't.

	My port 25 is going to be open anyway, so it's not like i'm completely 



And as an afterthought, this must too be told,
Some people are taking pure bullshit, and turning it into gold.
