I have to write firewall rulesets for a pair of back to back dual vendor
firewalls with multiple DMZ's from each.

Can anyone recommend a good procedure to use. Opensource would be great
but you cant really beat a good book.
Standard rules:
Default everything to closed and see what breaks, open ports as
required. "Building Internet Firewalls" (O'Reilly and Associates) is a
good book to start with.

Also can anyone recommend a good resource for translating services into
ports etc
grep portnumber /etc/services
