    Hi there,

    I'm very happy for many of the great howto's there are on this site, but...(there is always a but :))

    I can't find a howto which covers the perfect Firewall based on Debian?

    Right now I'm using this http://www.cyberdogtech.com/firewalls/

    I'm getting ready to move to Lenny, and therefore I would be happy for a new howto.

    Anyone got a suggestion?

    If you want a dedicated Firewall/Router/VPN Gateway system, take a look at IPCop: http://www.ipcop.org

    Thanks Falko,

    I have looked at IPCop, But these days are difficult days, and therefore I don’t have a dedicated machine for gateway purposes. Furthermore we all should think of the environment, and therefore Ill prefer a setup where all the needed services as LAMP, SMB plus the requested Firewall and VPN setup is on the same hardware.

    You could say it is like http://www.howtoforge.com/perfect-server-debian-lenny-ispconfig3 with shorewall and PPTP or preferable the OpenVPN.

    You could even say it’s more like the SMESERVER, which has all this out-of-the-box, but I really hate the RPM packages, and there is always some kind of personal changes in the setup.

    I might do it my self, and share it here :)
