for a standalone/small network this does apear to be a nice single file firewall script, i just red through and it does what 99% of home users need, so i also approve of monmotha as a easy other option to shorewall.<BR>

There is also shorewall - people rave about it, but it seems to have a
spotty history (keep coming across emails implying that there have been
releases with security problems) and is overly complex for a small
system.  I installed it, started to read the docs and configure it,
thought urrrkkkkk! and went back to monmotha and was back online in

&gt; Greetings,
&gt;    I have been with gentoo for about 3 months now, but only recently
&gt; decided I needed a firewall. Don't ask, as I still feel simply not
&gt; having ports open is just as good as a firewall that blocks them.
&gt; Regardless, I would love your suggestions on firewalls avalaible for
&gt; Gentoo. Also, if you could provide a brief explaination instead of just
&gt; a name, that would make my day much easier. Thanks!
&gt; regards,
