firestarter - program to manage and observe firewalls
This manual page documents briefly the
This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution
because the original program does not have a manual page.
Instead, it has documentation in html format (see below).
firestarter is a GNOME program that will help you in configuring
and monitoring a GNU/Linux firewall using either ipchains or iptables.
This program follows the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (`-').
A summary of options is included below.
Generate firewall scripts from current configuration. If firestarter is updated and you don't want to run the GUI, the scripts in /etc/firestarter are not up-to-date. So you have to run firestarter with this option to update the scripts.
