Tool to help build an iptables-based firewall

'myfw' is a firewall based on iptables snipets or modules. A configuration uses these modules to facilitate rule-writing. They can also contain raw iptables commands. Configs can be pre-defined, which is useful for multiple machines that need the same firewall rules. The program can also generate ipac-ng rules according to the iptables chains inserted.
