Which of the following should NOT normally be allowed through a firewall?

Show Suggested Answer Hide Answer
Suggested Answer: A

The Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) is a useful tool for remotely managing network devices.

Since it can be used to reconfigure devices, SNMP traffic should be blocked at the organization's firewall.

Using a VPN with encryption or some type of Tunneling software would be highly recommended in this case.
