    Install Firewall (iptables)


    Dear All,

    I want install slackware 10 or 12 as bridge firewall using iptables.
    When i install slackware, iptables already installed by default from slackware cd.
    I want to know how to remove the old iptables (installed by default) and install iptables with new version.

    Regards,
    Dharma Lase

    The iptables that installed from the slackware cd comes in slackware packages. So you can remove it using pkgtool.

    One suggestion though, if you want to use iptables, it is probably a good idea if you build your own custome kernel

    You might consider trying Guarddog as a firewall (assuming you want to use a software firewall that is). It's really just a GUI to help you configure iptables in a neat way.

    Here's a link.
