GIPTables Firewall is a set of shell scripts that hgenerates iptables rules for Linux 2.4.x and newer kernels. It is designed to run on hosts with one or two network cards. Users needn't install additional components to make the package work with a GNU/Linux system; to set-up a very secure firewall for a GNU/Linux machines is iptables and GIPTables Firewall. It can be used easily with a host that has only one network card; this host can be a server or a workstation. It assumes that if your host has two network cards, then the host should be a Gateway Server that connects your internal network to the Internet. This project was a GNU package. It has since been decommissioned and is no longer developed.
