Essential Tips to ensure the success of your firewall instalation ....
Overview will deliver the latest version of a customized Linux Firewall. Its sole purpose in life is to protect the network that it is installed on. By implementing existing technology, outstanding new technology and secure programming practices, this firewall is the best solution for those wanting to keep their computers/networks safe and sound.

The firewall software is open source and is distributed under the GNU General Public License []. In addition to the many obvious advantages of open source, the fact that the source is open allows security experts, worldwide, to audit and fix security holes.

It will run on older “rescued” PCs retrieved from the junk heap.

You will be installing a Linux based operating system, but it is not meant to be a general-purpose system. The firewall design attempts to eliminate as many features from the system as possible. The central idea is that the more code that runs on the firewall, the more places there are that are vulnerable to attacks.

Once you have obtained your configuration parameters, installing the firewall software will take as little as fifteen minutes.
