PMFirewall is an Ipchains Firewall and Masquerading Configuration Utility for Linux. It is designed to allow a beginner to build a custom firewall with little or no ipchains experience. This firewall should work for most Workstations, Servers, and Dual NIC routers using either a dialup, DSL, Cable, or LAN setup. It is restrictive to outside attacks while still being as transparent as possible to those inside.
Release Notes: A man page, chkconfig commands for RedHat-based systems, the ability to turn off IP autodetection and specify the IP address during install, backups of previous installations, the ability to specify IP ranges for ports, rules file loading reorganizations, generated rules are added to rules.local instead of rules.2, rules will now load in proper order, an uninstall script, and fixes for various small bugs.
Release Notes: A fix for a problem with pmfirewall starting before pcmcia ethernet cards were activated, causing the firewall not to activate, use of a reject flag instead of denal of IDENTD requests to fix timeouts problems for services that require an AUTH response, better DHCP compatibility for cable modem users, support for a DHCP server on the internal interface, a new pmfirewall.rules.local file to add your own rules, a new restart function, and a new startup option to ip-up.local for PPP (now PPP users won't have to restart pmfirewall each time they are assigned a new IP).
Release Notes: Support for most popular distributions of Linux, a new display of detected interface and network information on firewall start, and code-cleanups and error checking.
Release Notes: A bug was fixed which caused masquerading to be installed even if you chose not to enable it; plus a few small cosmetic fixes. Mailing List is now active. Please upgrade.
