GUI Frontend for IPTABLES
Is there a GUI frontend that will make it easier to control iptables and modifying rule and when it is saved it is in the iptables format like:

PHP Code:

-A INPUT -m tcp -p tcp - --dport 3128 -j DROP

Use any gui firewall/NAT program like fwbuilder, firestarter, guarddog/guidedog (KDE), etc. They all take graphical rulesets and then convert them to iptables and install them.

which one of these tools will translate my choices into a file and if I wanted to edit it manaully, I could just simple modify the file. I attempted to use shorewall but I dont like the output files. It is not what I am used to seeing like my example above. thanks

I think fwbuilder does that.

Another suggestion would be to install Webmin and Shoreline Firewall and try that...I didn't see that a file could be edited, but this may help in the learning curve.
