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. =)
