Is "Firewall with GUI" actually the name of a program? Ubuntu, for example, ships with Gufw (Graphical user interface for ufw) which you can find under Applications > System Tools > Administration > Firewall Configuration.

Gufw is not really an easy program to use like ZoneAlarm. I think that that is what linuxzilla means.

Same question from me. A fire wall is a server service. There's no need for a GUI to run permanently. If you don't want to configure through CLI, then there's usually a GUI configuration wrapper, or if not already on your Linux, try something like Firewall Builder, Firestarter, FirewallD, Guarddog, Gufw, KMyFirewall, PeerGuardian, KControl, etc. Some of these are simply GUI front-ends for the FW you've got installed, some are full FW's on their own ... take your pick.

Usually however, a firewall would be running on your server, not on your desktop. And I do hope you don't have any GUI on your server. It's a total waste of resources. Rather just have a http configuration system (at worst), nearly all linux servers come with something like this. Then you can configure your server (whatever else it also does, e.g. file serving, email, domain, firewall, etc.) through any web browser connected to your network.

I have a Firewall running on my Desktop. Most probably because the Server is running Windows

My condolences

On Windows Desktop, I've not found anything better than Comodo Firewall. Only issue I have is it's hunger for CPU time, not an option for me on my workstation.

For Linux you could try this I suppose: http://www.linux-firewall.org/

Edit: Or http://firehol.sourceforge.net/ or http://leopardflower.sourceforge.net/

Firewalls

The problem of most firewalls is that you must have a good understanding how internet works. Second, configuring the firewall is close to programming.

Ppl argue that, since all ports on Linux are closed you don't need a firewall. But they don't tell you about security.

And btw, I use Crunchbang Linux. So, I am not exactly a newbie. But when it comes to firewalls in Linux, I am. But it is better that I will bring this subject up in a different thread elsewhere.

Ps. I like what I have read about leopard.

[QUOTE=irneb;4975817]My condolences

On Windows Desktop, I've not found anything better than Comodo Firewall. /../QUOTE]

As I already stated somewhere else, the best firewall (all considerations made) on Window$ was Kerio Personal Firewall (KPF) v.2.15. I'd used several at that times, also knew h/w firewalls, and found that KPF was very good, with an interface quite understandable even for newbies, and a control panel similar to H/w firewalls for those that used them.

The problem on Linux is any of those I tried (Watchdog, simple f/w, GUF,...) has all the basic essentials functions that KPF had:
- ability to create rules for application accessing network protocols
- create its own MD5 marks for them
- easy overview of open/closed IP ports
- the lightness on CPU and memory usage

I'm on ITC > 30 years, Linux user and "spreader" since 2008 and still waiting a "good" firewall on *nix

There was a very easy to use firewall available called guarddog. Not sure where it's at now. Google recognises the search term linux guardog firewall but the link doesn't work at the moment.

Basically it is initially set to block all and to allow you just select the protocol. From memory it was also possible to define new protocols. I understand it came near to finding it's way into KDE but they who ever they are decided not to include it.

Seems it's still available here but the home page link seems to be dead. Pity really as it's a much simpler way of setting them up. The only grief is knowing which protocols to allow but if one doesn't work then it isn't enabled.

Not a port but there is one particular software package that isn't covered by open source at all - a comprehensive optical design, analysis and optimisation package. People who want to do that sort of thing use a severely crippled version of a commercial program called OsloEdu - windoze so has to be run under wine or spend rather a lot and I do mean a lot of money. Much of the cost is probably down to the need for support even for people who really do know what they are trying to do.

A yahoo group has been set up to try and fix this cross platform and OS but as far as producing software goes it's currently more or less a one man band desperately in need of help. There is also a very capable optical person involved who can help with algorithms.

The group is here. Have to join yahoo but basically anyone can join.

tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/open_source_optical_design/

Wish I knew a method of broadcasting this to the OS devs world. Posting here might help. The project is Qt based.

Cadence OrCAD Capture and Cadence OrCAD Pspice. These are circuit and system simulation programs used primarily by Electrical Engineers to design electronic circuits.
This would be at the top of my list.
