Turtle Firewall is a software which allows you to realize a Linux firewall in a simply and fast way.
Turtle Firewall project is based on Kernel 2.4.x and Iptables. Its way of working is easy to understand: you can define the different firewall elements (zones, hosts, networks) and then set the services you want to enable among the different elements or groups of elements.
You can do this simply editing a XML file or using the comfortable web interface Webmin.
