    Linux Firewall


    Hi

    Im in the process of setting up a Cobalt Raq 4 web server and im looking for a sutible firewall for it. I do have a netgear router / firewall combo but no software firewall which from my experiances with Windoz seems to rather an advantage. As im rather new to Linux a simple one with a web interface would be very usefull. All suggestions are very much aprecitated!

    You already have a firewall, but it will be easier to administrate if you have a front end for it. There are several. I prefer Guarddog.

    Thanks for the info. I have seen guardog and firestarter but i cant use them because i can only acces them through a bash prompt through telnet or ssh. Hence the requirement for a web interface preferbly. It also has to be compatible with kernal 2.2 as Sun have stoped doin patches a long time ago!

    Smoothwall springs to mind: it has a web interface.
