Building an MS-SA box

Well the more I looked at it, the more I would agree, cause if MS is working
with the rule sets like a firewall does, meaning TOP DOWN matching, then you
would want your default, most often used rule at the bottom of the list thus
being the "catch all" rule that everything not matching the rules above
would be treated.

Julian, any thoughts?

The stored copy is in its original form for many reasons such as legal ones.
The delivered one on the other hand is of course processed. I agree, there
seems to be some confusion about that on the list.

By the way, I think the default rule should be last, might not matter here
but for good form if nothing else. :-)
