Thanks. I will have to check it out. Yeah, I think I will have to dump
Guarddog soon and starting learning a new GUI firewall program if Debian
is going to dump it. :(
Actually, will Debian remove my installed Guarddog later on or does it
leave it alone? Guarddog seems to work though. I use the same firewall
rules from my old Debian box (export and import feature).
1) Guarddog has not had a new release in over 4 years.
2) The last release of Guarddog was based on the obsolete QT3/KDE3.
2) Debian unstable no longer provides Guarddog.
Please draw your own conclusions in terms of what you consider "best".
As an alternative you may wish to consider gufw.
Description: graphical user interface for ufw
gufw is an easy and intuitive way to manage your Linux firewall.
It supports common tasks such as allowing or blocking pre-configured,
common p2p, or individual port(s), and many others!
