Hi there,

since guarddog wouldn't work for me (any more ?) -> a lot of ports are open port 53 is even open

due to either misconfiguration of my kernel ( :lol: ) or a broken guarddog (dunno)

I thought - why not use iptables itself

so how are your experiences with arno's firewall? is it difficult to set up ?

many thanks in advance

Hmm, 4,000+ lines of script, no clue what this is all about, but if you don't have such an all encompassing need, I would recommend writing a simple iptable script yourself, it is easily done.
Here is THE iptables tutorial on the net: http://iptables-tutorial.frozentux.net/iptables-tutorial.html :)

regards,
Bill

I have it running on my 4 machines (2 desktops & 2 laptops) without any problems and no big hazzle to setup since it is very simple ...
but be aware that the author kind of stopped any further development at least temporarily!
