Re: Debian equivalent of rc.firewall??
Since potato debian has implemented ifup[down]. Where you configure your
interfaces in /etc/network/interfaces you can add a line like:
iface eth# inet static
up /etc/network/firewall start
down /etc/network/firewall stop
So as your interface goes up you can load your firewall [ip-masq]
scripts. I have not used the ipmasq package and that might be better. I am
just giving other suggestions.
