Just enough security for dialup?
I finally got my dialup 56k modem working finally as root under Knoppix 3.3.
Si I'd better secure it. I go through the security thread here in LQ. Me to myself: "Hang on, what this?": Tons of links and info, great ...but do I really need all that for http surfing?
I'll need to take a week off for reading otherwise.
Can't I just connect as normal user, i.e. avoid connecting as root?
The iptables will they be enough, will they? It'll still take me quite a while to work out how to configure).
