i heard of double posts, but triple!?! and in the same forum ... you must like to click a lot

anyways, iptables is the popular firewall for linux, tho its usually ran from a scripts as each time it starts up the rules needs to be restarted

umm, probably best to do a search on google for this, there are some popular scripts you can get that will setup a firewall for you with iptables
