The next thing to be done for this new Firewall is to add system support for the "REJECT" and "ULOG" targets.
Then the rule-set will have the "DROP"s replaced with the right kind of "REJECT"s so the user doesn't have to wait five minutes for the store to time-out.
Amazon really, really wants you to access the store - it tries for an unreasonable length of time to do that.
The rule-set will come in two flavors - simple and advanced (for developers) - the advanced one, instead of dropping unknown packets will use ULOG to capture a copy for off-Kindle study.
This should lead to interesting things like "limited access" to Amazon network features -
Like getting authorization to use a public Wifi Hotspot on their "Free Wifi" account (which comes with your device).
Like using the e-mail "send to Kindle" feature.
The current firewall does not prohibit you from using your own - "at home" Wifi.
See section 4.7 of your 711 report (scroll down in the report) to: "Sponsored: No"
Just can't (right now) use the Public, commercial, Wifi hotspots.
No ETA for when this update to the system resources will happen, just know that my Kindle Koding partner (twobob) and I are working on it.
