ipmasq and recommended ways to integrate with firewall/port forwarding
Firewall harddrive fried after a power cut. So I just reinstalled, went like a
dream but it raised questions...
I used IPMasq which is just fine but i'm never sure how to add a firewall to
filter port access, my concern is that it is fiddling with ipchains so how can
i be confident my stuff is getting added and will not interfere. I noticed in
the unstable distro that there is a new ipchains package for load/saving
ipchain configurations and also ferm which deals with some of the tricks
associated with being confident the firewall config is useful. Could i use
them or are they not designed to play friendly with ipmasq?
The second part to my problem is that of port forwarding, i want to expose an
internal system ssh port through the firewall and also an internal http server
from time to time.
What i really want is to see some recommended config examples in the
README.Debian of ipmasq. So am i a newby with dilusions of grandure? (if so
sorry) and, can anyone offer advice?
