Question firestarter and port problem


could someone please tell me what i'm doing wrong?
I followed the installation of FIRESTARTER firewall but it
doesn't seem to work for me and when installed it on root
I didn't see any graphical interface. Can someone tell me
what i'm doing wrong? samething happened with nmap3.0,
there was no graphical interface.
Also I got port 846 open but the service on that port is unknown,
should I worry with that port?

so what does happen when you run "firestarter" from a console? any errors?? please try and give some more useful information when you ask questions. nmaps GUI is normally called nmapfe i believe

and PLEASE try to use more useful thread titles as well, what was wrong with somethign like "Firestarter GUI does not appear on load" or similar?

With the astericks, Are you trying to untar an executables?

And what's inside the directory? Maybe you got the archive untarred and are ready to configure and install.
