Firewall_ng

October 16, 2016 — BarryK
Up until now, Quirky has been using the venerable 'Linux Firewall' PET. The original project site for this has long ago disappeared.

There is another firewall setup script that has been adapted for Puppy Linux by '01micko', with a nice GUI using gtkdialog.

Recently, Puppy Forum member 'watchdog' extracted it from woof-CE for use in an old version of Puppy:

I decided to consider it for inclusion in Quirky. Yes, looks good, so I have put it into rootfs-skeleton in woofQ.

Here a github repository for firewall_ng, at dimr's woof-ce-libre:
