Re: firewall advice

I am using the v1 scripts on Debian 3.0r0.  IIRC, I had to change one
directory in the INSTALL script.  SuSE puts the symlinks in
/etc/init.d/rcX.d and Debian puts them in /etc/rcX.d/.  Edit the
script before running it.  I like it because it works at the policy
level of Internet, DMZ, and internal zones, services, trusted
networks, etc.  Plus rules to block attacks the author is knowledgable
about that few of us know about (e.g., ICMP).  And does not require X.
All other tools I tried were just GUI interfaces to add individual
rules to IPchains/IPtables.  The result is no better than my
knowledge.  The SuSEfirewall scripts are "expert in a script".
