Firestarter is a complete firewall tool for Linux machines. Use the
firewall creation wizard to create a basic firewall, then streamline 
it further using the powerful dynamic rules modifiers. Open and close
ports with a few clicks, or stealth your services giving access only
to a select few. Watch the real-time hit monitor as attackers probe 
your machine for open ports, in vain. Firestarter requires GNOME 1.2
