Most modern mail clients recognize and give you the option to &quot;Reply to List&quot; but if yours doesn't just simply replying to the mailing list works also (tho it doesn't set some mail headers and it confuses threading on some clients)<BR>

As a side note, this is my first time using a news mailing list. Do I
reply to the person's actual email, or reply to
gentoo-security@g.o in responce to the emails I get from my
own posts?

&gt; &gt; Greetings,
&gt; &gt;    I have been with gentoo for about 3 months now, but only recently
&gt; &gt; decided I needed a firewall. Don't ask, as I still feel simply not
&gt; &gt; having ports open is just as good as a firewall that blocks them.
&gt; &gt; Regardless, I would love your suggestions on firewalls avalaible for
&gt; &gt; Gentoo. Also, if you could provide a brief explaination instead of just
&gt; &gt; a name, that would make my day much easier. Thanks!
&gt; emerge net-firewall/shorewall
&gt; &quot;Shorewall is high-level tool for configuring Netfilter&quot; (iptables). The 
&gt; configuration files for shorewall are much easier to understand and edit than 
&gt; dealing with iptables rules directly. This is a really nice tool and I highly 
&gt; recommend it.
