firewall, ppp and eth.
I've setup a firewall at home using ipmasq. I have the standard setup of one ppp
modem interface and one ethernet interface. I now want to do a similar thing for
work but I need the system to redial the modem if it drops out. What packages
would be recommened for this purpose that will work with ipmasq ?
Is ipmasq the recommended solution for firewalls ?
I tried playing with the gfcc package (GTK firewall control center). Does this
package use ipmasq ?
Does it talk directly to the kernel or maybe it uses ipchains ?
Can I use gfcc with ipmasq (or other firewall type packages) or will they
The boss currently has a win2000 server for the modem but it doesn't do any
firewalling. I would like to replace it with a Linux box for obvious reasons.
Maybe a nice GUI interface (gfcc) to control the firewall will convince him. Can
the firewall be controlled remotely (eg. by SNMP) ?
