    1394 connection is a name for a firewire connection for devices working with lots more data - like camcorders, DVD players and digital audio equipment.

    So they are all local and will not affect your Firewall at all.

    About : The high-speed serial connection of IEEE 1394a carries up to 400M bps; the forthcoming 1394b will deliver 3,200M bps over either a 4.5-meter cable or a 100-meter optical-fiber connection. Unlike Universal Serial Bus, with its high dependence on the central processing unit, IEEE 1394 is a peer-to-peer bus for up to 63 intelligent devices. And the chip set adds only $5 to the cost of a piece of gear.
