APF Firewall


I am new to this forum and I am glad I stumbled across it. It seems to be a wealth of Linux knowledge.

I recently installed APF (Advanced Policy Firewall) on my dedicated server. I scanned my own address and all non necessary services were "closed".

Anyone have any experience with this particular IP Tables firewall and any recommendations?

Thanks!

Hey there, welcome to LQ!

I haven't got experience with APF, I see it's Iptables based a usual but with some hooks for Snort, string match support and QOS IIRC.
Shouldn't handle different than any iptables fw script I'd say?

Thanks for the reply. We tried installing a few other firewalls ... even one with a GUI (FBuilder) withou success. This one installed easily and seems to be working okay.

My next project is to install Snort.
