Firestarter is a complete firewall tool for linux machines. it features an easy to use firewall wizard to quickly create a firewall. using the program you can then open and close ports with a few clicks, or stealth your machine giving access only to a select few. the real-time hit monitor shows attackers probing your machine.

firestarter is no longer developed and is missing some critical features such as ipv6 support, so users may be advised to look into more modern alternatives such as gufw.

Very well written user manual but perhaps could add even more details. Note: PPTP VPN to a Microsoft server may not work if firewall is on. I'm not certain Firestarter is responsible for this or not but be aware of the issue.

I prefer this to the default firewall configuration tool, its easier to understand and the beginning set-up wizard is helpful. I do wish it could be set to run on system start more easily.

When not capable to configure your own iptables it's a good alternative. Still, manual configuration of iptables is safer.
