FW Builder


Hi,

I'm relatively new to Linux so I built myself a Suse 9.1 machine. So far I have Samba up and running and GCC etc installed but now I have come to try and sort out a firewall. I looked at the inbuilt Suse firewall but it confuses me. All I can see is that it allows you to block ports etc but I cannot find where you can configure certain IP addresses or subnets through on a port but block for all other ip's.
In slight desparation I have started looking at FWBuilder which looks to have a GUI interface which looks to be what I am after. The only trouble is when I try and install the rpm packages on my machine using Yast it goes through to the Yast screen but doesn't appear to actually install anything. If I run a search of the machine using Yast sure enough the FWBuilder components are nowhere to be seen.
I have doublechecked I have downloaded the suse 9.1 rpm files and also used multiple download sources for the files. There are no dependency errors coming up when i try and install the rpm's.
Am I doing anything completely stupid?
Any help gratefully appreciated.

Andy

"whereis fwbuilder" at the cli will show you where is it located. Issuing "fwbuilder" at the cli loads the app, here.
Mine is in /usr/bin/fwbuilder

thanks for the reply, just sorted it about an hour ago. I had a couple of corrupt rpm's so it wasn't installing properly. All up and running now though and I'm quite impressed with it.
