DISCUSSION: [Hari's Linux Corner] Random Linux app: guarddog

This thread is to discuss the article titled:
[Hari's Linux Corner] Random Linux app: guarddog

A lot of Linux users complain about lack of GUI system configuration tools for Linux. While that is a general perception prevalent in the Linux community, I can certainly say with confidence that there *are* plenty of GUI configuration tools provided you dig deep enough and do a bit of research on the internet. So I'll try and bring some of the more useful system apps into prominence in my column. Some time back I discovered a fantastic Linux firewall configuration tool called guarddog. It's pretty much a front-end to iptables and it allows novice users to easily configure their firewall without going through a lot of mystifying code. Furthermore, it's also highly configurable unlike a few other firewall frontends and gives a fine enough degree of control to the average desktop user.
