    setting up iptables can be a bit challanging at first. If you dont want to do all the manual configuration there is a very nice iptables frontend called firestarter it has a nice very easy to use GUI and an init script which is called at boot time. you can emerge it like this:

    emerge -av firestarter

    then add it to the default runlevel like this:

    rc-update add firestarter default

    you can configure it when logged into X with the command:

    firestarter

    as root.

    Force rub3x # firestarter

    (firestarter:18575): GnomeUI-WARNING **: While connecting to session manager:
    Authentication Rejected, reason : None of the authentication protocols specified are supported and host-based authentication failed.
    Force rub3x #


    A proper configuration for Firestarter was not found. If you are running Firestarter from the directory you built it in, run 'make install-data-local' to install a configuration, or simply 'make install' to install the whole program.

    Firestarter will now close.
