Re: application level firewalling in linux?(was:ipchains...masq..spyware)

Title: Message
Ipchains is a packet filtering firewall. All packets that pass through the machine are examined for the source, destination any type. The packets your appliactions sent to the linux box are not stamped with the appliation that sent them.
The mechanism for this level of control is to have a second firewall that is application aware. Runnin a packet filtering firewall on your linux bos and something like zone alarm etc on your windows box will achieve the effect you are after.
The two types of firewall have their own pro's and cons, If you have a look at packet filtering and session aware firewall
configurations you will see the benefits of both types
