Port knocking

Sun Mar 19, 2006 11:49 am

Anyone know if there is any chance of introducing a port knocking feature to the Mikrotik firewall?

I am not sure that I follow. My understanding is that address lists are used to group IP addresses together for firewall or packet processing of some kind. Port knocking is sending a certain sequence of port "knocks" using a portknocking client to the firewall (almost like a password) that will temporarily open up other ports.

Perhaps my understanding of address lists is incorrect?
