why hello there!
I'm pretty happy with my system at the moment, but I'm hoping to tighten security (I don't believe I have a firewall installed..... fresh Slackware 9.1 installation)
I tried reading a tutorial http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.n...-tutorial.html
but I get lost... some other place tells me to delete IPCHAINS if I use IPTABLES... I don't know
could someone perhaps guide me? one better, help me configure my firewall.... I downloaded iptables 1.2.9 and am lost.
I'm on cable internet... through eth1... just a home computer... no apache, sendmail, server stuff, etc.. just internet browsing, IM, that kind of stuff.
I'm actively looking around for tutorials atm, but I thought I'd really like some human help, ya know?
