Which is the default/designated way in Debian to set up iptables rules

I mean the /etc/init.d scripts is long gone... ;)


I used to use iptables, until I found Shorewall. It's a completely
configuration file driver implementation of iptables, but it makes
writing the rules so much easier. You just have to give it information
about your interfaces, and ports you use, and shorewall really handles
the rest.

I recommend it to anyone who doesn't want a GUI firewall, but doesn't
want to configure iptables manually.

Edit: I resent this message because something went wrong with the
last...I have no clue what happened.
