Firewall question

Hey all:
I've just recently installed Red Hat 9 on one of my computers at home and set it up to run as a firewall using Shorewall 1.4. I really like the feeling of having my system locked down but would like some feedback regarding some other firewall solutions. I plan on setting up a webserver, game server, and FTP server on the Red Hat machine. I probably won't have the game server as often. Thx for your feedback!

I have used Firestarter and Guarddog, and Guarddog appears to be more stable. I use Redhat 9 aswell and installed the 2.4.21-15 unsupported kernel as required bridging support.

Although Firestarter has a better GUI with realtime hits, it just seemed to not update the IPtables correctly when I made changes.

Hope this helps..
