[RC5] Keyservers port 80?

Hello Victor,

Yes, an internal address, but when you take control of an internal computer
the next step is to collect information about the internal network, eg. who
do what here. Why provide to the hacker already such info ? Better let the
hacker do a port-scan and been catched for this suspicious activity.

Btw, it's the proxy address, and if proxying can be a kind of firewalling,
it is not the same.

But we are going out of the topic of this list.

Best regards,

David.
