(these ones http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=193260 don't work on Kindle3 as it has an older iptables that doesn't have "-m iprange")

Can also use the chattr +i option: http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...12#post2402312

There is a KUAL button to install a firewall that includes a BBB (Block Big Brother) fiilter.
Developed on a K3, enhanced and tested on K4 and K5 (both of them).

The posts that you linked to pre-date KUAL system with its firewall and close back door buttons.
