Re: reduction of brute force log

I am going to test these rules out -- this looks REALLy good!  But...I've got just ONE question: why on Earth would you 
permit ICMP???

And what significances are ports 50, 51, 1599, 1600 and 1601?  443 and 80 are HTTP-S and HTTP (respectively), 123 is 
NTP -- I realize that, but what are these others ports used for?

I haven't tried this myself, and I don't know if it is already suggested,
but this should stop all the pesky scriptkiddies from filling up your logs.
Might prove to be a better solution, who knows:
