NAT by itself is not a firewall and only offers limited protection. For a quick solution you might be able to use one
of the security distributions of linux like clark connect, ipcop, smoothwall. see www.distrowatch.com for a few. I
think some of them install snort when you install the disto.
I have a client who has MS proxy server 2.0 and a NAT firewall. I have
already been able to exploit it. I am recommending they get a regular
firewall put in place and dump all the rest. They however dont want to
spend too much $$ on the project so I was thinking why ont a linux firewall?
Having never set one up before and only having a little knowledge of linux
where can I go to get a basic tutorial that just covers firewalls and linux.
I know there are a million pages of text out there on linux and firewalls
but i am under a slight time constraint and need a step by step with
explanations or something similar for now.
Any1 know of any sites or texts to get that would do this?
