need help setting this up


Ello all I may have a bachelors in network engineering, have my ccnp, my rhct and ethical hacking cert, but there is a saying out there that says "If you dont use it, you lose it"

Well guess what. its been 10 years since i have used that education, why, because i ended up after working in the field for 5 years, i decided to go back to school for aerospace engineering haha. anyway i need some help big time setting up a small test system.

Oh, the one thing i still can do very very well is supernet and subnet.

Ok, so here is a link to a pdf i am following and i want to set up a test system that mimics this pdf so i can follow along.

https://nmap.org/docs/discovery.pdf

Basically, its two hosts on seperate sides of a firewall. i need a easy GUI operated firewall platform that is easy to set up and use for this tutorial i am following.

what do you recomend..pfsense, ipcop, smoothwall. none of those?

thanks

If you want a basic GUI to set up and modify firewall rules then use webmin as the front end to iptables.

You'll need a distro, I'd recommend CentOS as there's plenty of documentation for that and RedHat.
