Creating a Debian Firewall - A step-by-step tutorial
Posted by CyberDog on Mon 3 Oct 2005 at 11:43
For quite some time now I've personally worked with building custom Linux firewall solutions. I wanted to share my knowledge with others interested in the networking and Linux fields, so I've begun work on a Linux Firewall tutorial series.
The format is designed to cater to beginners in Linux, but the topics encourage exploration and can be a good foundation for more experienced users looking to branch out as well. The tutorial utilizes the Debian distribution as its core system, and gives step by step instruction on installing and configuring a computer system for use as a firewall/router/network gateway in a SOHO or home network.
Now that I've finished the core tutorial and am proceeding to the extended topics, I feel the work is ready for public exposure, and I would greatly appreciate some peer review. I'd like to invite the members of the Debian community to review my work, and hopefully provide me with some great feedback!
Without further delay, on to the tutorial...
