If you really want to protect your box, and are running something that
supports it...  You could turn up the outside interface with no IP bound to
it.  To my knowledge Solaris and *BSD will do that.

Now, you'll have to use the backend for access to it.  Only other thing would
be if that your traffic was all routed thru that box, this wouldn't work.
You'd have no where to route the traffic to.  :-/
