    What do you use to configure Iptables?


    I am curious to what others use in order to configure their firewall / Iptables.

    So far, I have been using Firestarter, but I ran into a problem and got no answer from FS-Security (yet). This made me think of looking around for another configuration tool.

    Or should I go for the direct approach and configure manually?
    What do you use?

    But seems to be a abandoned project (it's not developed anymore).
    But you can download the latest version still from the site.

    Thanks for the tip Dapper Dan.

    I will try both of course and see what I like best

    Have a look at IPkungfu, it cant get easier. Webmin has a nice module for "aiding" you in configuring your IPtab
    les. Though, personally I prefer you handcraft mine. If you are interested here is a nice howto/tutorial on IPtables
