Security Gurus, et al,

I have my own idea of what a firewall is and what it does. I also
understand what statefull packet inspection is and what it does. Given
this information, and not prejudging any responses, exactly what is a
firewall for and when is statefull inspection useful?

Please respond on-list as I want to have some useful discourse and
discussion in the clear. Flamers and Trolls will be disregarded. :)

Thank you.
