Hi
AS per the objectives given on the SUN Site, I need to have some information about Firewalls and the way the various protocols react to different Firewalls.
I have knowledge about the various protocols and some information about the the way they go through Firewalls ( like the configuration to be done to the Firewall in case of JRMP - as given in the RMI Spec)
How much of infomration related to Firewalls , do i need to know.
Moreover I could not get much inforamtion about IIOP and Firewalls, other than the fact that most firewalls generally are not configured for allowing IIOP and that there is a IONA Wonderwall that particualrly give IIOP.
I also understand the basics of the differnt types of fire walls that exist

Hi Vivek,
I would read the chapter in Jaworksi on firewalls for the tunneling info.
For a very good overall intro to types of firewalls, try http://learningcenter.3com.com/courses/firewalls/main.htm.

And look for firewalls. You have to sign up, but it's free.
