Re: Firewall and Laptop

I've been meaning to setup a firewall and wonder if anyone has setup
an iptables script or can recommend a good program tailored for a
laptop which is not connected 24x7 (dialup) and receives dynamic IP
each session (determined by my ISP's gateway) running over PPP? I have
kernel 2.4.18 and running Debian unstable. Also does anyone know if
there is any info on settup ip Snort + ACID + MySQL + Apache for
Debian and in running Snort for PPP?



You didn't mention you were running a GUI on your laptop.....but if you are then take a look at firestarter. I am very happy with it.

In the past I've had snort/mysql/ACID running on my unstable laptop. I think the packages would have enough info to get you running.

acidlab, acidlab-mysql, snort-mysql, acidlab-doc

I didn't run snort on a PPP device but I don't think it would matter.
