Shorewall.. er where is it and what can i do with it..
I;m using Mandrake 8.1 and i'm exploring the use of shorewall as a network firewall and Apache as a webserver :-
Proposed network architecture :-
internet ---- modem (bridged mode) ---- shorewall/apache server -----> pc1----> pc2 (etc daisy chain)
1) Can I run shorewall and apache on one Pentium 200MMX machine and have it adequately handle minimal hits (er.. very minimal)? Will the apache server be secure?
2) To make sure the apache server is secure... can i run apache logge din as root then logout and log in as ordinary user? Is that what it means to have security?
3) where is shorewall in mandrake? my mandrake's gnome isnt working so im doing everything from CLI....
thanks if anyone could help get me started...
