FCT - Firewall Configuration Tool
I have been taking a look at the FCT...it's interesting
I have only a few issues with it. Overall it's well done.
The issues I have with it are these:
1> It's still cryptic. Not everyone is going to want to deal
with having to know what ipchains is and all that... The interface
needs to be more user friendly. (But from a technical standpoint
I like it)
2> This is a generic front end. It's designed for multiple
types of systems. (not just linux and not just ipchains) This
leads to inconsistancy and the possibility of other problems.
3> It doesn't seem to be up to par with the 2.2.x kernel yet.
I think it does have some good ideas and definatly is well done. I'd
like to see both a more straight forth front end (for those who
know what they are doing) and also a more idiot proof type of front
end (for those who are not linux swavy)
Also, another thing is that it still does not solve the issue of
having a shell based configuration program. (tho this can be used
vial lynx! ).
Just a few tid bits.
