Re: [SUSE Linux Users] help with display settings
- My prefered method of maintaining firewall settings is to use Webmin
(http://www.webmin.com). It will allow straight iptables
configurations and shorewall.
I don't think SuSEFirewall2 is Shorewall because I had to install
Shorewall separately on a SuSE 9.1 server a while back. Of course this
could have change. In any case Webmin provides a real nice interface
to do this.
Another tool to consider would be Firewall Builder (http://www.
fwbuilder.org) it provides a nifty GUI for setting up your iptables
scripts. If I remember correctly it includes a pre-built profile for
using Samba that opens up the correct ports.

good old iptables. I think SuSEfirewall2 is shorewall. There is a
good howto on iptables, and iptables has a website.
