Question Is there a Shorewall GUI frontend?


hello,
Are there any Gui front ends that one could add to mandrake 9.1 to make Shorewall a little more user friendly. And also make it easier to monitor if someone has been "knocking @ your front door" ...

There is in 9.2 as a part of drakconf. I don't now if it will work for 9.1, but the package is drakfirewall. There is also draksec, where you can set the security level of much stuff.

By default Mandrake 9.1's firewall configuration utility (drakfirewall... part of Mandrake Control Center) has quite a simplistic frontend. I have found the webmin tool for configuring shorewall to be quite good.

A handy browser-based frontend to many tools. It will be on your install CDs.
