    I didn't realize that Knoppix came with a firewall....

    And if you did install one, wouldn't it just be iptables?

    There are actually bootable live CD Distro's designed for firewalls, maybe you want to try one of those?

    Most firewalls are simply scripts that manipulate iptables (or in older cases, ipchains). On FreeBSD, it'd be ipfw.

    The link I posted earlier is the place to start -- iptables. After that, just google for iptables+knoppix+firewall and start reading...
