overlooked that point. As John pointed out, 'Shorewall' is iptables.
I haven't looked at shorewall. But 'smoothwall', a very similar system
is highly recommended for standard setups (2 or 3 network cards). It
takes a lot of the pain out of the setup, and is probably more secure as
it is easy to 'mess up' when writing your own rules from scratch.
