An Introduction to Easy iptables Management with Shorewall

Shorewall is a gateway/firewall configuration tool for GNU/Linux. This talk will cover the basics of getting and installing Shorewall along with some of the more straightforward and common configurations (e.g., using Shorewall on a gateway system to provide firewalling services between your LAN and the Internet). The emphasis is on the easy nature of Shorewall configuration and how Shorewall assists the administrator. A very brief overview will also be provided of some Shorewall's more advanced features.
