Question newbie ?, firestarter firewall startup


I think I've seen this somewhere but I'm not finding it again. How does one start Firestarter firewall as a normal user? I'm fine as a root user, but firestarter gives me a message I don't have permissions to start it as a normal user. Thanks in advance.

well you have to be root... it's a firewall... if a user could do that then they could disable it, which is obviosuly undesirable in a real network.

Ok. If Firestarter is set up to automatically start up when calling ppp0, then does it automatically start when a normal user dials up? I did a ps -a, but did not see firewall as running.
