Why is that people are naming a packetfilter "firewall"?
A "FireWall" is a concept of different applications which are securing your network.
A "FireWall" consists of more then just a packetfilter. E.G. content-proxies, content-filter, vpn points etc. pp.
Please, if someone writes such an article, please refer to the correct wording.
