But this way of connection with KUAL is just brilliant idea and moves it to the next level.

My thinking about firewall was about a bit different setup, though.
Something like this
- ACCEPT all LAN IPs ranges
- ACCEPT white-listed IPs
- DROP all know evil addresses
- LOG into file system remaining attempts
- default policy: DROP
+ be able to see the log w/o connecting Kindle to PC. In KUAL (ideal, if possible) or as an eBook (less elegant)

But in first place I need to investigate if logging would be even possible. So this is where the fun part begins...
None of the logging modules are included in the Amazon build, you have to build them yourself.

I did, and posted them (somewhere here) a while ago - certainly not for the FW version you are using on your ?? model Kindle.

But the setup scripts, cross-tool-chain, and directions should still be usable.

Yeah, I just like teasing people about things I have different opinions about.

You can go ahead and use the current firewall for the basic groundwork. If you can cook up any new functionality, feel free to post about it and maybe contribute your changes in that thread.

Note that the authors of BBB feel confident they have targeted the full range of Kindle-using IP addresses (I don't know if they block the website though...) -- it might not be necessary to block all non-whitelisted IPs.


As far as viewing the log in KUAL rather than as an ebook, take a look at how Native Menu displays things.

You mean, the BBB firewall? This:

This will prevent the downloading of updates, but that is not its purpose.

Use the "Backdoor Lock" to control updates instead of this.
Sounds like it should work...
