Re: First Steps.

Quoting Heddle Weaver <weaver2world@gmail.com>:


Taking first steps in the security world.

You can turn any old Linux box into a firewall with a config file, but that's just because Linux is cool like that.

iptables (the binary) is pretty nasty, as long as you know it's there and can read man pages I'd leave it at that. (opinions will vary on this)

Start off with something like Shorewall and get a basic router going, most packages you install will have examples to hack at. Add more interfaces, second WAN connection, wireless cards etc...
