I don't know about "cloud"...but I have heard of the word "firewall," in
speaking of internet connections. I have only a vague idea of it's meaning,
however. It has something to do with security and limiting accessibility to the
LAN by the outside world.
I hope that those more knowledgeable than I will post their answers to the
list, so that I can learn something new!
