Hi, Setup one of the BSD cousins + ipfw is the best route you can go. I
use FreeBSD personally, but read openbsd is best at firewall usage.

Subject: suggestions on a good firewall

im planning on making a firewall for my home system.. I am running
windowsXP
/ SuSE 8.1 dual boot  what I want to do is set up another computer to
act as
a firewall for my main system. what I want this to do is to be able to
control what enters and leaves my system  with a way to set up
permissions.
preferably I would like to have a firewall running on either a Linux or
Unix
os ... no m$ =) tia
