I'm also having problems with IPChains... What's this Mason of which you
I've been using pmfirewall (http://www.pointman.org) with some success, but
I'm having trouble connecting to www.hushmail.com and www.smile.co.uk (both
secure systems... might have something to do with it).
I'd recommend turning logging on for denied packets for a while, it does
help in debugging the IPChain rules!

Hey Sriram,
Plenty of HowTo's on ipchains., Packet filtering can be done thru them. I
would suggest checking out mason if you're new to the ideas of
firewalling. Mason automates the ipchains creation by listening to the
traffic going thru you network. That is how I learned. Took my network
down for 3 days, did traffic one port at a time and watched to see what
rules were written. It was a great learning experience, albeit boring.
