    hands down...TINY PERSONAL FIREWALL for software anyways.
    the rules management is the closest you will come to a HW firewall.

    Cool firewall?

    a software-on-box firewall is no god.

    Go to the local dump and find you´re self a 386´er or something like that. Go out and by two netcard adapters, and kick a linux dist into it, read the IPCHAINS-Howto and then you are rolling the dance floor with a firewall that rocks.

    I know somebody belives that hardware firewalls are much more secure, and there is different views of that, however my view of the case is that a "real" box has much more processor power and can do much more in less time, but enough of that. This is´nt supposed to start a flamewar about hardware vs. software firewalls!

    a linux box is considered a hardware firewall, and odds are, even after reading the howto, it won't be easy to configure it properly.

    I do think that it is a great idea though.

    firewall

    If you are going to learn to configure a firewall with linux, you'd be better using iptables rather than ipchains.

    Red face Hmmm...

    I guess that depends a bit.... But ZoneAlarm or TPF is great! And free!

    Thats for sure, but i just dont know if there exists a uptables-howto.

    I haven´t got a internet connection at home so i only have the howtos that goes along with slack 8.0

    A word if I may ...

    If you want a really robust firewall, with a really neat IP Filtering system, why not have a try at openBSD ? That's what I used at home, and ... well, it fits the need I have.
