    for about 3 years I ran a few Linux machines along with my Windows machines. I ran all the myriad PFWs on the Windows machines, but I had the MOST FUN building my own firewalls on the Linux machines using "iptables". THAT was fun firewalling!

    I just spent about 60 seconds on Google and saw WIPFW which seems kind of dated. And I saw Netsh commands

    In the very cursory look I took at both of those, I don't know if I care for them.

    Thoughts? Ruminations?

    Thanks. Peace. Alan

    Ok, I got this. Netsh is NOT it. WIPFW IS IT. But it's old. The newest stable release is from 8/2011 and 3 days later there was an experimental release at Sourceforge. I think they've abandoned the project and are focused on QTFW for FreeBSD. WIPFW was a Windows port of IPFW for FreeBSD.

    That's a shame for Windows users cause its a Statefull, Packet, IP accounting Firewall, IPv4 only though.

    Oh well.

    Peace. Alan
