Hi all. I just installed Debian 3.1 Sarge yesterday and im loving the way it reminds me of FreeBSD )

However i have a few questions on securing it now. Im trying to figure out how to edit the iptables list. is it pico /etc/iptables.conf ? under root? I've been searching everywhere and havnt found any help or documentation on how to do this. Thanks in advance!
