Re: ipv6 question



off:

So, could it be reality, that the "next-generation" Linux Distro's e.g.: iptables will Default not ACCEPT, rather then this:
--------------------
iptables -P INPUT DROP
iptables -P OUTPUT ACCEPT
iptables -P FORWARD DROP
iptables -A INPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT
iptables -A OUTPUT -m state --state ESTABLISHED,RELATED -j ACCEPT

+ allow ICMP on INPUT because I heard/read that IPv6 relies more on ICMP
--------------------

it could make a "good standard firewall" (?FIXME) - if anyone puts any server service, than he must know that he must change the INPUT XYZ

sorry for just stating these kind of things :D just thinking..

I only seen a few distros, but they policy were default ACCEPT everywhere :O
