newbie ipchains setup HELP


ipchains issues.

ok this l00nix thing is really making me angry. i am a new linux user, runnin slack 7.1... and i really do want to love it, i truly do. but the config for every damn thing is so hard. before i get into any really hard configs... like getting my x runnin smooth and downloading things i wanna setup ipchains. wtf is a ipchain anyway? (i know what it is don't tell me) i have it set to where my ipchain rulesset file is pulled and used in a script that exe as my lovely liloboot thing runs. but the rulesset my friend made for me is bunk... it will not work. i know it's not that hard to write ruleset, so i wanna do it myself. thing is i am a REALLY NEW newbie ... and i have no idea what i am doing. another thing is, that even using the godly gooooogle i cannot find any GOOD tutorials on ipchains. all the tutorials i find are ment for ppl who already know ipchains, damn all u l00nix users know too much. u and ur man pages... anyway. if anyone knows some GOOD links meant for newbies on the basic setup and config of ipchains please shair them with me.

thanks,

skittles

Maybe take a look for a firewall over at freshmeat. I'm using a firewall that comes packaged with Mandrake (using the newer iptables, BTW), it's a no-brainer if you just want to surf and all the probes come up "Stealth" at Steve Gibson's site. That's good enough for me.

with kernel 2.4 ipchains has been replaced by iptables. it should make configuration easier (now that isnt hard, is it).
check out this page if you're interested in the basics:

http://www.linuxnewbie.org/nhf/intel...es_basics.html

if you only want to get the stupid thing to work, here's the howto:

http://www.e-infomax.com/ipmasq/howt...tml/index.html

if you do want to use ipchains (which i do not recommend, due to possible incompatibilities in the future), here's a good howto (just go by the steps):

http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/IP-Masquerade-HOWTO.html

... and another tip from a linux newbie (what i still consider myself to be): patience! first copy the whole script off the howto page and get that to work, then start adding custom filters.
