Re: Firestarter not starting
Thank you for your very helpful and informative response, Ken.
As you can see from my cross posting, I have now worked most of it out.
The upshot is that my firewall is and has been operating fine and it
starts from ip-up. I have now got rid of the irritation of the error
message on boot..
What I now realise I am after is just an applet that produces a
reassuring icon in the system tray that shows the state of the firewall.
I do not need the Firestarter GUI to be running if there is any other
way of doing this. In the mean time, when I get round to it (it won't
be for a week or so now) I will try to get the GUI running minimised as
you suggest. I am a bit (not much) concerned about the compromise in
security that is mentioned.
