iptables

http://www.iptables.org/
'iptables' is built on top of netfilter: the new packet alteration framework for v2.4 of the Linux kernel. It is an enhancement on ipchains, and is used to control packet filtering, Network Address Translation (masquerading, portforwarding, transparent proxying), and special effects.
