firewall...sigh...


so firestarter messed up my performance pretty badly, supposedly because i use KDE instead of GNOME...i'm using mandrake 8.2 which also seems to come with some firewall wizard, but i can't actually find the file to start it up...just wondering what firewalls work well with KDE 2.2.2.

thanks.

The firewall in Mandrake should be configured using the Mandrake Control Center, and 'should' load up everytime you boot the distro.

Have you tried to use that one?

As far as firewalls in KDE I don't really know.

No, there is an option in MDK8.0 to configure a firewall which apart from denying certain servers from operating, such as telnet and smtp, firewalls off your machine.

You could try a search on freshmeat.net for firewalls.

Almost every linux distro comes with a firewall; either ipchains or iptables (newer, better).

no, you shouldn't go with ipchains, you should go with iptables. ipchains is now deprecated.

your desire for a "fire wall" program is only ever going to be a GUI for configuraing iptables. personally i use firestarter.

is ipchains that bad? i have found it fairly easy to use and configure, and very secure in redhat 7.1/7.2

Ipchains are just old, Iptables are replacing them. Redhat has the ipchains and iptables, and loads the ipchains during startup by default
it is in a script in /etc/rc.d/init.(some number, maybe all)/ipchains
there is one for iptables in the same folder. to change from ipchains to iptables, you need to go to the directory and run
./ipchains stop
./iptables start
then if you know any cool rules for iptables, run those.
Mandrake should have the scripts in similar places
goto netfilter.samba.org for more information about them
