I'm currently being turned onto shorewall, which eases rule making for
iptables, I used to manually script iptables and was told I'm ridiculous for
doing so. (Hope I have my terminology right here.) Anyway, shorewall doesn't
seem to difficult; I'm currently not aware of a gui for it though. Webmin
plugin?? (RHL 9 is hitting End of Life at the end of April, just FYI.)
http://www.shorewall.net and for a couple old style samples of my manual
iptables stuff: http://www.turnpike420.net/linux2/IPTables/ however helpful,
they could be dated. Those script samples (the .txt files) were used in RH 7.3
and would be the file called /etc/init.d/iptables and I believe same location
in RHL 9.
Some TriLUGers are researching OpenBSD and pf for firewalling. (I think that's
the proper name.)
hope that helps,
