Firestarter in a nutshell
Firestarter is a complete firewall tool for Linux machines.
Whether you simply want to protect your personal workstation
or you have a network of computers to secure, Firestarter is
here to make your life easier. While a Firewall does not
guarantee security, it is often the first line of defence
against network based attacks.

Firestarter is a GNOME Fifth Toe application.
