Someone on alt.os.linux.mandrake sent a post in claiming you can make
your computer invisible (stealth) to the Internet by issuing this simple
command as root:
/sbin/iptables -A INPUT -p tcp --syn -j DROP
Is this true and would it be a good thing for me to do, even though I'm
connected through a router with a built-in firewall?
What does that input line mean, other than the obvious calling of
"Half the lies they told me aren't true!"
