host based firewalls?

so these admins don't keep the default local firewall on their boxes? if they did, the daemon wouldn't be available to the outside world even if it bound to all addresses. this is basic system admin stuff. :/

(obviously with REQUIRED holes punched through) - reminds me of admins that just turn off SELinux etc :(
