configured remotely by accessing Cobalt's built-in HTTP server. Upon access to
the HTTP server, a java based administration program would start, where a user
is required to enter a pass phrase in order to authenticate himself. Since no
username is required, just a passphrase bruteforcing of this interface is
Access to this port (by default set to port 8181) should not be permitted from
the outside. Further access to the firewall interface itself should not be
allowed (by default set to port 2005).
