Thread: Firewalls?

  1. #1


    We run freebsd servers and are wondering which firewall is the easiest to install / operate, and also if you have any links to some good tutorials to install them? I've noticed IPF requires a kernel re-compile ( to my understanding ) and i'd preferably like to not mess up any machines ( i do have a dev server to test things on ).

    Also, just for notes: we dont need to block specific ports, just IP's that abuse certain things on our systems.

    Thanks in advance.

    Latest version of FreeBSD does not require any kernel compile stuff.. There are some examples in /usr/share/examples/ipfilter/ and at official freebsd web site
    <<Please see rules for signature setup>>
