    Guarddog is blocking my firestarter?


    Ok, i installed firestarter as a firewall. then i heard than you need to turn Guarddog off for it to work. Ok, so i went to the GD ver. 2.5.0 with my KDE 3.5.1 build and "disabled" it. but the APPLY button is greyed out when i try to apply....no workee!

    So in the command line, i ran GD ver. 2.5.1 in the "root" and that one will "apply"!

    Can someone tell me if the OLDER/and or NEWER version is in the way of starting firestarter?

    All i know is that firestarter says it won't start.....thx :

    let me ask a dumb question...

    why are you trying to run two firewalls? Both Guard Dog and Firestarter do roughly the same thing (front end to iptables, more or less).

    You should pick which one you want to use and uninstall the other one.

    Good luck
