where to find a ready-made firewall package ?


I was reading about firewalling and it's just too complicated for me , probably those made out of iptables or ipchains are for server aplication which i guess will need finer tunning on configuration . I have a firewall on windows(zone alarm) that works fine (had also tiny firewall but i didn't managed to make it work ), can anybody name some good one's , please ? thanks a lot .

it works differently to windows really, as iptables is what is done. but there are a number of GUI's around which abstract it for you, like firestarter. have a search for it. it's good.
