    Hi there,

    I'm very happy for many of the great howto's there are on this site, but...(there is always a but :))

    I can't find a howto which covers the perfect Firewall based on Debian?

    Right now I'm using this

    I'm getting ready to move to Lenny, and therefore I would be happy for a new howto.

    Anyone got a suggestion?

    If you want a dedicated Firewall/Router/VPN Gateway system, take a look at IPCop:

    Thanks Falko,

    I have looked at IPCop, But these days are difficult days, and therefore I don’t have a dedicated machine for gateway purposes. Furthermore we all should think of the environment, and therefore Ill prefer a setup where all the needed services as LAMP, SMB plus the requested Firewall and VPN setup is on the same hardware.

    You could say it is like with shorewall and PPTP or preferable the OpenVPN.

    You could even say it’s more like the SMESERVER, which has all this out-of-the-box, but I really hate the RPM packages, and there is always some kind of personal changes in the setup.

    I might do it my self, and share it here :)
