    Ex windows user here, too spoiled by Comodo's firewall that prompts you every time a connection is attempted. You answer yes or no or cancel to create a new rule that allows or blocks such connections in the future.

    What linux firewall has this feature?

    I don't know anything about it. Just Googled :) .

    How was your Win > Linux transition? Did you have someone to hold your hand?

    Got firestarter already, it does not prompt to create a new rule when a connection is attempted.

    By the way, even a text-based firewall or intrusion detection system will do. As long as it prompts.

    This one seems broken, it does not prompt as advertised.

    Hasn't anyone thought of simply reading the log of iptables with a script and prompting the user to create rules based on what it sees in the log?
