Firestarter
===========
  The latest version of Firestarter can always be found at
            <http://www.fs-security.com>

Firestarter is a complete firewalling tool for Linux. 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 takes full advantage of GNOME but
will work in most environments.
