I noticed that Arp protection was added to this beta and was curious as to exactly what it stops. Mind you I am not going to threaten to hold my breath until I get an answer, but, I am curious to find out what this feature protects me against.
I have been following Stem’s posts over at Wilder’s Forum about this subject as it is implemented in the Jetico firewall. From what I can tell he is looking for protection against someone trying to assign a fake MAC address to the Gateway address. Does the ARP protection implemented in version 22.214.171.124 stop this?
Since national ISP’s are starting to set multiple users up on the same LAN then ARP could become a problem.
He uses NetCut to test this but so far the download is not available from that site for me to test it.
Here is the post I am refering to:
