    Request: Suggestion for Simple Packet Filter/Firewall


    I'm in need of a simple packet filter/firewall. By simple I mean effective, but I don't need all the features of iptables such as forwarding. I want to be able to write a simple port, protocol, allow or deny sort of thing.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    firewalls

    I use Fedora Core 1 (not that it matters really). My box acts a firewall to share my broadband connection. So it runs NAT, port forwarding & standard filtering. I use firestarter to manage this. firestarter is just a GUI that allows you to simply manage iptables. would this be of use to you?

    try these links:
    http://firestarter.sourceforge.net

    if you want a firewall distro, i hear smoothwall is very good.
