Thanks for all  of the suggestions.  Isn't there  a *default* firewall
install  when  you  setup  a  basic  version of  etch?   If  I  didn't
specifically  install  a  firewall,  does  that  mean  that  there  is
currently no firewall setup?

I  am happy  to  write and  work  with iptables  using  a script  from
/etc/init.d,  but  I thought  etch  might  have  a *default*  firewall
pre-configured?  Maybe not? :).

I think not :)

I use this script which is really easy to configure


and also if you want more security and also be able to enter your site
with ssh, you can read this.


hope it helps.
