Good easy firewalls


Im setting up a server for a small lan party
and i wonder is there any good easy firewalls
where you can just block all ports except the ones you need
to have open .... text base interface is not a prob
but i want an easy one because the lan starts today....
Any help would be apriciated....

Check out MonMotha's iptables firewall. It's pretty simple and does what you're wanting. Just google for it... it's easy to find.

Personally I suggest you to use iptables WITH the excellent GUI guarddog ( ).
