netfico is a complete Linux/netfilter (iptables) firewall and gateway configuration tool
netfico is a complete Linux/netfilter (iptables) firewall and gateway configuration tool.
netfico takes over the complete process of brining upi the network interfaces, configuring VLANs, setting routes, setting IP addresses and configure the netfilter/iptables rules.
This also means that there is just one central place, where IP addresses and netmasks are configured, thus eliminating the redunancy between the system's network configuration scripts and the firewall setup code.
A central goal of netfico is to make handling of firewalls resp. gateways with dual stacked (i.e. IPv4 and/or IPv6) hosts and a larger number of subnets easy and feasable.
Here are some key features of "netfico":
Combines network interface configuration and firewall rule setup
Supports IPv4 and IPv6. Rules are only written once and automaticly applied to IPv4 and IPv6.
Supports VLAN interfaces (automaticly configures VLAN)
Support for IPv6 in IPv4 tunnels planned
Different interfaces for the same subnet for IPv4 and IPv6 possible (e.g. when IPv6 is tunneled)
Easy handling of multiple subnets with "virtual firewalls"
Customizeable. Custom rules resp. rule templates can easily be added to netfico.
