Re: [suse-security] SuSEfirewall2 and multiple IPs for interface
Concerning "Smoothwall" I absolutely agree with you, I heard of the
writers attitude before
and couldn't get by with it as well.
IPcop seems to be a little "stuck" in development, latest change at
sourceforge was on 19.4.2003,
which seems rather old to me when it comes to security related things
like a firewall.
Hmm, openwall doesn't seem to be designed to "simplify" things, to me it
looks a little over-
complicated at first sight, but I didn't try it for long ;-)
What I *like* with shorewall compared to SuSE-fw is the concept of
having a layout
of "tables", which are reflected by different config files in exactly
that manner, how they
are constructed form the config-docs.
To me it is a very clear thing to look at these files and see what's
happening here or there.
Another nice tool is Astaro firewall, but this is commercial and I don't
like those graphical
config-tools as well.

you should have a look at Shorewall instead of SuSEfirewall2 !
There are also openwall and ipcop. Smoothwall however is out, as far as
I am concerned, because of
I don't know how they're all related.
Personally I find web-configrable firewalls a pain and a half.
