Would this be called port triggering? I've seen a few commercial router
boxes that support that feature, though I've never looked into it

I know how do this with PF.
Don't have any idea with iptables. :(

I've recently used an SSH server that had an interesting

certain port. After doing this (it will just time out - no prompt),
you then SSH to the server in question. The telnet step has to be
carried out, if not SSH will just time out.
My question is, is this called reflexive firewalling, and can I
duplicate this with iptables?
