|I'm a long term user of r-fx networks' Advanced Policy Firewall.
It's not a firewall as such, but more a collection of scripts to make administering IPTables a doddle.
Over the years I've been manually hacking it to play nice with Gentoo, but now I've decided to fork and make my changes available. You can find the project here: https://github.com/TomMettam/apf-gentoo.git
Here are the changes that have been made to the scripts:
Modified hardcoded references to /sbin/ip and /sbin/ipconfig, and instead search on the PATH for these tools
Added an OpenRC init script
Added detection of OpenRC to the installation script
Added better support for monolithic kernels, including better detection for ipt_recent in the kernel
Soon I am going to start working on adding support for ip6tables. If anybody would like to help out, that would be awesome. =)
