PCX Firewall is an IPTables firewalling solution that generates static shell scripts based upon the user's configuration settings. This lets the firewall start up quickly, since it does not have to parse config files every time it starts. Users must download both the Toolkit and Rules packages to work usefully with the PCXFirewall software.
