Is there any firewall management program ...

Is there any firewall management program available that would let me configure the firewall just like the one on a linksys box?

Thanks!

firestarter, is a gui frontend to the firewall....I confess that I don't mess with the firewall much because I am behind a router....I adjust my router by going through web browser to URL
192.168.1.1
You can install friestarter with YUM:
yum install firestarter

I like Firestarter for configuring a firewall under Linux. There also is Guarddog. Just doing a search on freshmeat.net for firewall generated 330 results.

This picture shows the kind of firewall management interface that I'm searching for. The linksys box being configured for port forwarding through a web browser.
