I was looking at the description of Smoothwall on their website and it sounded like it's meant to be on its own box between the computers you're doing your work on and the network rather than on the same box.

Is that correct? I'm looking at this as a possible solution to the continuing bug in the Fedora firewall that blocks Samba but I don't have a spare box.

thats true

smoothwall is a complete distro that needs to be installed on a separate machine. If you dont have a spare one, I think you should start working on your iptables skills
