RH9 do I do it all???
I have RH9 installed and its all working fine, but.......

I want to make it secure but i'm not sure how. I did start reading about iptables and then thought to myself "your using KDE why not get a GUI???"

What would you say is the best GUI/program to get that will make admin of my firewall a simple task?

There is a good program I am reading about on my linux journal magazine called Firewall Builder . Its a GUI program to get your scripts up and running. I haven't used it yet - but looks cool. I would recommend (not that I know) learn iptables so you can understand everything. I have been reading other peoples scripts to get an idea of how i should build my iptables scripts.

blimey that was quick.
Right, now i'm in the right direction.

I went to here:

Do I need to download/install all the rpms for RH9??

Or is there just one rpm that does it all??

You will need the program:
and the thingy for IPtables (i think this is right)

from the command line as root you could install them all with rpm -Uvh (url here) (url here) url here) from the internet.
