Easy Firewall Generator is a PHP Web application that generates an iptables firewall script. The generated script is designed for a single system connected to the Internet or a system acting as a gateway/firewall for a small private network. The generator prompts recursively for a variety of options. When the selected options form a complete set, it generates and returns a commented firewall script based on those options. The generator includes documentation on iptables and each option.

Release Notes: The script was altered to do some basic ingress filtering on firewalls generated for gateway systems by dropping packets coming in the external interface that have a source of the internal network.
Release Notes: Rules have been added to explicitly filter TCP packets with illegal flag combinations. Support has been added to the Allow Inbound section for mDNSResponder.
Release Notes: This release adds support for allowing inbound connections to an NFS server and some additional minor cleanup items.
Release Notes: This release adds an SSL option to the Web Server and Email options in the inbound services section. It also adds an option to the Port Forwarding feature to also redirect internal requests to the external IP to the internal system.
Release Notes: This release adds two choices to the Allow Inbound Services option. One choice allows file transfers through the MSN Messenger instant messaging service. The other allows the user to specify a port or port rage (UDP, TCP, or both) to create custom rules.
