For the Small Business or Home Office on a tight budget, setting up a firewall on a multi-homed linux server makes good sense.
We will cover the differences between:
- Setting up a Bastion Host
- Setting up a Gateway Routing Firewall
- Setting up a DMZ
We will use Netfilter/IPtables to set up a working firewall on an Ubuntu Server installation.
We will cover some networking basics, as well as some linux admin basics.
Participants are encouraged to bring a laptop with a fresh or disposable bare-bones Ubuntu Install pre-loaded. Folks needing a little help should show up an hour early, folks needing a lot of help with this should look for one of our install-fest meetups or basic linux install presentations.
