Question GUI Firewall/IDS


On my win2k system i use sygate personal firewall pro. It shows a graphical representation of all traffic on the network and pops up windows whenever something trys to access my network(ping, port scan, etc). Is there anything like that for linux?

Maybe you are looking for something like Astaro. It's a whole distribution though ... maybe you should take a look at that one. It has web based GUI and it's afaik pretty secure distribution - just like Kaladix and others!

Astaro... there's a link from the above page to 'Astaro's homepage'. From there, you can select the 'download' button at the top and download from there.

Firestarter and Shorewall are both excellent.

Astaro is a full distribution, has a limited GUI for the free version and needs a lot of non standard installation/maintenance.
