Thanks for the responses. I had a services list from different books
like the one from Cheswick/Bellovin, but some tips of you made it
feasable for me to extend this list:
strobe.services from the program strobe by Julian Assange
I found out that most denied packets are ftp data connections (tcp
src gt 1023 dst gt 1023) used by the Netscape WWW browser. This seems to
be a dangerous fact: browsers like Mosaic use the assigned ftp-data
channel, but Netscape uses non-privileged ports nearly at random. Of
course, some of the services found in strobe.services or RFC1700 are
perfectly overridden ;-)
Any ideas, how to handle ftp from WWW-browsers (except from removing
the ftp-gateway pages)?
