Are you announcing one or asking for one?

I've got quite a few frontends for iptables listed on my website. Just search the Software Directory for Network Firewalls. Firestarter, Shorewall and Firewall Builder seem to be pretty popular.

Also have a look at Webmin and the third party modules...
www.webmin.com

And I have a few suggestions for enhancements if you want some extra input...
I guess this would make for an interesting thread??? Hint, hint ...

Regards,
Peter

webmin is TOO complicated?? wow... always seems too basic and simple for most people... and this is for a uni project? Maybe you spend too much time drinking
