Re: FWgen: no line breaks
Got it using save as text as you described.

I can't reproduce what you describe. The program sets the MIME type to text/plain when it returns the firewall. I tested it just now from http://morizot.net/firewall/gen/ using both IE6 on W2K and Konqueror on Redhat 7.3 and it returned the plain text firewall as expected. I was able to save it from both browsers. (I did have to specify a text file in IE 6.)

I suppose I need more information if I'm going to be able to identify the problem.

FWgen: no line breaks
Using Konqueror in MDK9, the FWgen produces
a file without line breaks. Also does this
in IE6 on Win2k.

Thanks. I wanted to give people enough information embedded in the script so they could easily tweak it further on their own. I wanted to move from ipchains to iptables, but the only tools I could find were either fairly rudimentary or were complete firewall systems that you installed and then managed through their interface. So I wrote the sort of script generator I had hoped to find. Most of the work went into studying iptables. I'm glad you found it useful.

Nicely done!
For the first time I have an iptables protected system. I especially liked the references embedded in the configuration script.
