RE: Debianised Firewall

That works.... that's what I was looking for.

But I still didn't get the working. dpkg-reconfigure iptables just make
the symbolic links to /etc/init.d/iptables. Where does is say to start
it. I mean calling /etc/init.d/iptables alone doesn't work and simply
puts out the help.

Well, I use the /etc/init.d/iptables script. It is pretty good, although
the author seems to be self-depreciatingly skeptical about it :-)

After you have your IPTables firewall loaded you can simply do:

/etc/init.d/iptables save active

This will save your firewall rules. Now, you can simply do:

dpkg-reconfigure iptables

select "yes" to the dialog box. This will create the appropriate
symlink to /etc/init.d/iptables in /etc/rcS.d/, /etc/rc0.d/ and
