Using a GUI to configure a system
Author: JT Smith
LinuxPlanet's Michael Hall evaluates Linux security packages with graphical front ends. "We took a look at a pair of GUI-based firewalling solutions for Linux: one a commercial offering from Stormix Technologies (Storm Firewall), and the other a free software project that integrates with the GNOME desktop (Firestarter). Both provide graphical front-ends to ipchains, taking some of the pain out of building tailor-made firewalls for home networks."
