View Full Version : Firewall

Are there any good firewall progs for linux?
I'd like it if they were most like Zone Alarm for windows as for as look and function.

the one with looks, i dont know, but the one with power and good security i liek APF, because of the anti dos and the way it handles traffic

try firestarter, as far as I know it is very good (I use a hardware firewall anyway ;) ) for installing see : http://fedorafaq.org/#installsoftware

what I'm looking for is not so much complex rules and stuff
(mainly cuz I have no clue how to use them)
I'm basically looking for a program control, so I can control which programs can access the internet and pretty much block most incomming stuff except that whish is initiated by a program that allowed to access.

GuardDog ('http://www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog/') is about as simple and easy as you can get (even simpler than Firestarter, in my opinion). There doesn't seem to be an FC-specific RPM that I can find, but usually installing from a tarball isn't too onerous.
