Please turn off HTML, as it makes messages unnecessarily large and many people

For a firewall, you need a machine with two (or more) NICs.  You need a recent
kernel with netfilter support either compiled in or built as modules.  You need
the iptables user-space program and a firewall building tool would not be a bad
idea.  Personally, I use shorewall at home and for a lab that I administer.

That's it as far the actual packages go.
