What is the PCXFirewall?
It is a Toolkit of perl libraries that allow you to define firewall rules for the Linux netfilter/iptables subsystem.
Then there is the Rules module which implements specific firewall scenarios using the Toolkit. The VeryTight2 rule module is the recommended rule module to work with.
To make creating and editing the VeryTight2 config files (which are xml based) easier, use the Web Frontend.
See the Project Summary Page for
the latest news, file releases, etc.
You need to download the Toolkit and Rules packages to be able to do anything usefull with the PCXFirewall software.
The latest versions are:
- Debian packages
