    Being a command-line guy, I don't generally use GUIs to configure iptables, sorry... No idea here.

    Endian - never heard about it. IPCop is a nice simple router distro with GUI web interface and lots of third-party addons, similarly m0n0wall which is FreeBSD-based. If you'd prefer something more "enterprise-like", there's Trustix Enterprise Firewall with an interesting WYSIWYG interface, based on Trustix Secure Linux.

    And no, not possible to run those in Fedora unless you mean virtualized (VMWare, Xen, Virtualbox etc.) - they are full Linux or BSD operating systems, not applications (packages).

    Firestarter is probably the friendliest out there, easy set up, easy to set internet connection sharing and least obtrusive.

    Hello,
    Either Firestarter or the command line.
    I recommend you go with the command line - it's the only way to make sure you fully understand what's going on.

    hi, buddie,

    I like best the guarddog. It's much easier to use and configurate. mainly if you use a debian distro.I have written a tutorial about it, if you need some help to configurate it, I may help you. just post a private message to me.best regards.

    You dont need a firewall, because its already built into the kernel. firestarters etc are just the GUI front-end to the inbuilt kernel firewall.
