SuseFirewall2 and Iptables: Which one is better?


Hi there,

I recently started using SUSE Linux, after many installations with Red Hat. I need to configure firewall services in a machine, and I just found that Suse has something called SuseFirewall2. I used to use Firewall Builder and Iptables, that is a powerful and flexible combination, but I was wondering, can I use SuseFirewall2 instead of those tools? Which one is better?

I want to configure an internet gateway, with a DMZ and an internal network to protect.

Thanks for your help.

Well technically S.u.S.E. firewall is just a front-end like firewall builder also. There IS only 1 Linux firewall: netfilter (iptables).
