I've been using Guarddog (http://www.simonzone.com/software/guarddog/)
and I'm pleased with its ease-of-use (I still know very little about
iptables itself but have no trouble understanding guarddog).
That said, I'd love some informed opinions from this group about how
it compares to other iptables front-ends.
