There are numerous available to meet any need from simple to enterprise-capable. Firestarter, Shorewall, and I believe there is a basic firewall configuration utility in the distro. The web-based firewall gui in Webmin provides a very simple rudimentary funtion for this. There are many others. Keywords: firewall, nat, masq.

It was past incomplete. It said virtually nothing, yet we have two
"experts" divining that he needs firewall rules. Suppose he has only
some computers and some wires, with the ends freshly spliced, wondering
what to hook them to?? Or two dumb terminals and a pair of rabbit ears?
Or two tin-cans and a string? No one knows, except "The Amazing Kreskin"
and he's dead. Period.
Bill's response was not "trite" at all. The OP can learn, that I have no
doubt. When he does, he will be better served. That's the point. We all
come here to serve or be served, usually some of both. Learning how to
reach that goal successfully, and acknowledge the conventions of lists
such as ours and of others, is not a bad thing. Bill just cut through
the mustard. Ric
