Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I went to DrakFirewall and I unticked CUP and everything is unticked. I clicked OK and no additional prompt like PPP popped up. I clicked OK and thats it. When I went there again to check CUPS was still checked.
Most linux firewalls tend to be iptables scripts and I have found shorewall to be okay. I'm using it now as a second layer firewall behind the smoothwall box.
try installing it separately and see how you go, but I don't understand why the wizrd isn't working on your end. Do you have the box set on standard security (not that I know that would make any difference).
It was no trouble here. I installed and did the initial shorewall setup here with the wizard.
After that I just edit the
file, and others, to set it up like I want... ie the internal firewall needs a lot of open ports for nfs and smb file transfers and P2P and such... Then I run
to update the rules... I've had it working here on a few versions on mandrake from 9.x to 10... I'm at a loss why it doesn't work there...
There are other scripts to try, like firestarter, but I don't know much about that...
you configure shorewall by running the drakfirewall wizard. Have you tried that again since you got shorewall installed with urpmi?
You can configure it by hand, but it's harder. You would need something like
net ppp0 detect
file and lines like
ACCEPT net fw udp 111,137,138,139,631 -
ACCEPT net fw tcp 22,111,137,138,139,631 -
file and you may need to check the policy and zones files and it's generally a bit technical... The general policy would be to drop packets and then you set ports to accept in the rules file...
Would be easier if you could get DRAKFIREWALL to do the setup for you
