    Anyone know a good IPTables front-end?


    As of right now, IPTables is a little over my head to get used to. I read the howto on the main website, and I understand it all, but its a little too much for me to set it up manually. Not to mention it says that it doesnt save your settings, and you lose them when you shut off the computer (which I do every night).

    I just need something thats easy to set it up with, and I will configure it manually later on when I have time....but I'd like something maybe that could save settings and load them every time I load the program....if that kind of program exists, that is.

    Shorewall is a good front end to iptables, as is Webadmin, which is also good for a lot of other administration tasks. You could also use a firewall generator that will produde an executable iptables script that you just run once, and it saves the tables.
