firestarter: Firewall creation/monitoring tool1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

Firestarter is a firewall tool for Linux, and uses GNOME. You can use the wizard to create a basic firewall, then streamline it further using the dynamic rules. You can open and close ports with a few clicks, or stealth your services giving access only to a select few. It features a real-time hit monitor which you can watch as attackers probe your machine for open ports.
