pS-Performance Toolkit Recommendations for Use with Firewalls
The pS Performance Toolkit development team, working closely with the NTAC Performance Working Group, has produced a comprehensive guide to configuring site and host firewalls for use with the measurement tools. This information is provided because:
- Well known ports will make it easier for sites that are using firewalls to specify the requirements of measurement on the host itself, and all network devices in the middle
- Sites that are not using firewalls will be able to test to firewalled sites (as well as firewalled sites testing to them) and be guaranteed of success. Previous attempts in this space could have involved sites choosing differen$ 'ranges' for their tools, and the tools did not effectively negotiate on a strategy that would lead to working measurement.
