Also remote GUI's, putkey commands (public key exchanges), and if you dont
have the VPN modules I believe it uses a 40 bit encryption
algorithm FWZ1, or DES. never seen anything about those ports in any of
the manuals, never heard it mentioned in any of the classes.
Oh, and those ports are a really nice way to identify a FW-1 machine ;)
