In general, for the rest of us: whitelisting lets your firewall know which kinds of messages should be allowed through. Think of your firewall as the bouncer at a really exclusive club. Only those on the list get in — and you want to be on that list.

Here’s what you need to know [or pass along to someone else on your team!]:
