    Default Just thinking about firewalls on BT4 Beta?

    I was just wondering, I know BT4 beta rocks, but I could not help but wonder what everyone else is using in terms of a firewall for BT4.

    I was using this (ufw) via Konsole, then I decided to use the GUI, and installed it via synaptic.

    So really now and you think you can do better or have a better security related distro somewhere?

    How DARE you insult the people who have given up so much of themselves to make this possible.
    I totaly agree! Some people like you just have to be eliminated. Feel so sory for guys like you...

    I'm currently doing a uni coursework on iptables, and you could do a lot worse than to use that. It's definitely included in BT3, haven't tried BT4 yet.

    Although it looks a lot scarier trying to configure your firewall from the command line, you can get really fine-grain control over its behaviour, and learning to use it will probably really help gel TCP/IP and firewall topics together if you aren't an expert yet (like most of us).

    Another advantage of iptables is that it's installed on most Linux distros, and Solaris, and BSD, etc. So it's a good one to learn, since the knowledge you gain will be applicable for a wide range of OSs.
