These are soft-firewalls that have more then network-access to the client
machine, so they can determine by some api what executable can be linked to
what connection(-attempt)
Not shure what you mean by Linksys implementation here...?

Or the executable is detected (local machine) OR the HTTP-request is somehow
different then one coming from iexplore/browser. If there is a protocol that
shows the app, it can be faked!

I think it can't be done in a firewall appliance...
