    Default Who's Bright Idea Was it...

    Who's bright idea was it to place an entry in the "Packet Filters" that forced port 22 stay open even on the Ext. interface? I was surprised when I found that entry, especially since that is usually the first thing most router block, much less open.

    In all reality, I am not sure the harm it could have possibly caused, but I am sure somebody somewhere may have been affected by this.

    What exactly is the issue? You'd rather have to enable the packet filter after manually enabling the ssh service?

    If the service isn't running there is zero risk.

    I've certainly never had an issue with it, it's one less rule for me to create when enabling SSH access to my Untangle installations. And it makes creating a block rule for traffic bound to the Untangle server on TCP port 22 if it comes from an WAN interface that much easier to insert.
