I thought that default config would set up a firewall for me ??
I have to
to access the web ...
I admit iptables and IP addresses confuses me,
Can anyone tell me of an idiots firewall ? One even I can set up ?
This is more a kludge than anything else, but I found that firestarter
had to be restarted everytime that I connected to the internet in order
for me to access the internet. I ended up just putting a one line
script in /etc/ppp/ip-up.d that was just "/etc/init.d/firestarter
restart" after the shebang part. I just assumed that for some reason
firestarter could not deal with the IP changing while it was running.
