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.

oh yea..for those of you who missed the posting on this to begin
