        I'd run Nessus against it to see if you get anything. Run it
against the external and internal interfaces and that should give you a
pretty good idea of your security outlook.

Subject: IPTables Based Firewall Testing


I was wondering what kind of processes would be involved in testing a
firewall built around IPtables.  How could you ensure that the rules are
sufficient? Is a simple port scan enough?
