            iptables, finally arrived
            With version 1.3.0, ipcop finally has changed to kernel 2.4 and iptables.
            Version 1.3.0 installer even works with the 1.2.x backup floppy! I had the new version up and running in 10 minutes flat, on a second machine.
            Congratulations, guys. You know definitely know what you are doing.

            ipcop 1.2
            Well done team, I just installed ipcop 1.2 on my old 333mhz celeron box from a http install, restored from floppy from pre5 and as usual it all went without a hitch. Congratulations on the new release.

            Easy, great support
            Incredibly easy to set up - had three sites firewalled and VPN'ed with minimal effort. Developers and user community are very helpful, regardless of your technical background or skill level.

            Not to mention the fact that an update was posted here for it today, going from version 0.1.1 to version 1.2, and it's listed under Minor feature enhancements!!! That's quite a jump for some minor enhancements, I'd hate to guess as to what the version will be when some major enhancements get added! Not to mention that there is no mention on the IPCop website of v1.2 at all, only 0.1.1
