Default Firewall - How does it work?


Hackers have been trying to find their way into my server and I decided to switch on the firewall. The only problem is that I can't find much in the way of documentation as to what it does.

- Can it stop flood attacks?
- Does it deny service to rapid requests?
- If it blocks somebody, does it do it for ever, 24 hours, 1 hour ...etc?
- Does it block all unused ports?
- etc

In short - does anybody know where there is a specification or a description of how it works? More info on the monotoring system would also be useful (ie What does it do and an example of how to use it?)

Kind Regards,

Adrian Smith
