Awesome, it looks like iptables and shorewall is the way for me to start
out. I'm sure after getting shorewall down I'll try manual iptable
configuration. Thanks!

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?
