An Introduction to Easy iptables Management with Shorewall

Shorewall is a gateway/firewall configuration tool for GNU/Linux. This talk will cover the basics of getting and installing Shorewall along with some of the more straightforward and common configurations (e.g., using Shorewall on a gateway system to provide firewalling services between your LAN and the Internet). The emphasis is on the easy nature of Shorewall configuration and how Shorewall assists the administrator. A very brief overview will also be provided of some Shorewall's more advanced features.

    People are free to bring laptops and follow along. People were installing Go on laptops during that presentation (myself included!)

    The monthly nylug meetings are more like presentations. Check out our bi-weekly workshops for a more interactive experience. :)

    Should we bring a laptop, are we going to follow along (like in a class) or is just a presentation?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
