Bulldog Firewall

Powerful but lightweight firewall for heavy use systems

'Bulldog' is a powerful but lightweight firewall for heavy use systems. It allows dynamic and static rules sets for maximum protection and has several advanced features. Be prepared to spend some time setting this up. If you are looking for a "quick fix", then you are on the wrong site. BullDog is NOT a quick fix, but rather one step in a complete security policy.
