Fedora does have a basic graphical control to the firewall at Main Menu > System Settings > Security Level, but it is limited. I recommend installing Firestarter
, a firewall tool for Gnome.
(TODO: update links)
Firestarter rpms are available at the fedora.us extras repository. The version built for Fedora 1 is at http://download.fedora.us/fedora/fed...6/RPMS.stable/
To update with yum, add or uncomment the fedora-extras repository. Here's the relevant section of my yum.conf:
name=Fedora Extras $releasever - $basearch - Extra Packages
yum install firestarter
Or you could download the rpm and install it, also as root:
rpm -ivh firestarter*
in the directory you saved it as.
Firestarter should be under Main Menu > System Tools > More System Tools. Run the wizard and you should be set. The documentation is at http://firestarter.sourceforge.net/manual/
