Firestarter FW


Anyone that have tried this fw? Seems quite ok to me atleast.
Was thinking about using my P2-133Mhz with RH7.2 (with dhcp server to the NIC to my LAN) and a FTP plus a webserver.
Anyone that has run all if these stuff and gotten pretty good security, AND not lost so much speed when using a computer in the LAN for networking games or whatever?

Just curious about this combo, if not just about firestarter.

sounds fairly similar to mine.... yeah firestarter seems to work very well. i get a few error messages on boot, but it doesn't seem to cause any problems. suits me fine.

Cool

Yes, I use the latest version of Firestarter with Red Hat 7.2 and it works very well as far as I can tell.

Note that Firestarter is only a fw-configuration script and not a fw in itself, it uses ipchains or iptables/netfilter depending on your kernel version (RH 7.2 should use netfilter).
