Answer

This question was answered on August 18, 2003. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Firewall is a router [computer which is able to forward packets between two or more networks] with some restriction rules applied.

Most of current routers can be used as an easy firewall It applies by example to Cisco routers, Linux systems, but real firewall is more complicated It implements mechanisms to allow dynamically opened holes for incoming connections [for FTP sessions by example] and more.
