I chose Nmap because IPCop wasn't listed.

The only one I use is ClamAV and that is only when communicating with bug ridden windoze systems!

Shorewall is just right for me when it comes to configuring a firewall just the way I want it, without too much hassle. The docs are excellent too.

Hmmm... it's a hole-in-the-wall project compared to some of these others, and indeed, I'm a bit surprised to see it listed (I forget, did I lobby for it's inclusion last year?) but Bro has seen quite a bit of progress this past year, so I think it deserves to get the nod.

Me too!

Although I've used nmap and wireshark in the past, and I maintain my iptables with a custom shell script.

nmap. Seldom bother with this but I've used "zenmap", a nmap front end to check my system before.
