A non-profit I volunteer for is going to be buying software firewalls for
their loaner laptops. I was wondering if anyone knows of a guide for testing
firewalls. I'd like to know of some testing tools to scan ports, send
different types of pings, emulate attacks and what I should look for in the
logs. A step by step "how to" would be great.

If you want to make sure I'm on the up and up, contact me. Thanks
