    Firestarter Firewall , anyone use this ??

    This is really confusing the hell out of me.

    Do i need an existing set of iptables rules in my /usr/sbin/iptables

    Do i need to remove ipchains or just make sure they dont get started?

    i'll be back with more info.

    I use Firestarter on my RH 7.2 box. I thought it was working good until I rebooted a week or so later and saw all these errors about the IP tables. I am still learning my firewall stuff so I don't know to much as it is but I am sure that something is wrong. When I scan myself (external IP) it acts like I am not even up, which is good, but I still get those errors. Tell me if you notice anything like this. I am currently learning Open BSD and IP filter as a firewall anyway.

    I believe that some time a go a trojaned version of firestarter was floating around so probably worth taking a minute to check you are using a clean version.

    Its really pretty easy to create simple iptables scripts to allow you to filter traffic, masquerade LAN connections & DNAT ports to specific servers. I found the easiest way to get started was to google around for existing scripts (plenty of well commented ones about) & then read through them with the iptables man page open to get an idea of what they are doing.

    One thing I like is the quick argument that is available in ipf or pf. Not found an iptables option that does the same (could just me being an idiot) but I find it most useful.
