Re: Firewalling under Debian



	Well if you have atleast one machine running with X11 you could
install Firewall Builder (fwbuilder)[1] which has a relatively straight
forward GUI that will allow you to drag and drop to create the rules you
want for the firewal... It then compiles to build a shell script which
you can then just upload to your Debian firewall and modify the
/etc/network/interfaces file to have it run the script when it brings up
the internal interface...
