Do it yourself firewall or smoothwall
I am also in it for the "tinkering: aspect; I figure it would be a learning experience to get a router/firewall setup the "hardway".
What do you guys think?
I run smoothwall, it protects my servers and systems on the network in my home. It's easy to set up and means I don't have to be an expert in security configs to be safe.
If you want to give that up, go ahead and build your own firewall. Personally, I wouldn't do it.Linux user #126863 - see http://linuxcounter.net/
The thing about learning iptables is that when you learn it the way I did, you'll learn an awful lot about networking protocols.
