I have to disagree. I did search for "firewall", and what came back was
numerous variations on the theme of "get your sysadmin to do xxx to the
firewall". No doubt that's a very useful solution if you're working on
a corporate/university network where you actually HAVE a sysadmin person
to do these sorts of chores for you, but not much help at all for people
working on their own systems.
