- The final topic we want to discuss is Windows Firewall.…A firewall is a program that protects…a computer or a network.…The firewall protects the computer or network…by allowing or disallowing certain types of network traffic.…The firewall uses a series of filters…to examine packets and traffic…passed into the firewall, to determine if that traffic…or packet is to be allowed or denied.…There are three criteria that Windows Firewall…is able to use to filter packets.…The first criteria is IP addresses.…
IP addresses are used to uniquely identify…every computer and device on a network.…Based on a packet's IP address,…Windows Firewall is able to allow…or deny packets from that computer.…The second criteria Windows Firewall…can use is protocol numbers.…Protocol numbers are contained within packets,…and are used to identify the types…of protocols that are within that packet.…By examining the protocol number in a packet,…Windows Firewall is able to determine…if it will allow traffic based on…what type of protocol is located in that packet.…
