Projects / Frankenwall


Frankenwall is a bash shell script intended to create a highly secure IPTables based Linux firewall/router with QOS/traffic shaping/bandwidth management. Be certain you know exactly what your network needs before using it. The primary focus of this project is security through an intimate understanding of your networking requirements. All configuration is done by editing text files.

Release Notes: This release allows for multiple alternate configuration directories to Frankenwall and the install script. A new control option called "spawn" has been added. When invoked with the "spawn" option, a new configuration file (spawn_net.conf) is parsed for the network information used to build the rules. This allows Frankenwall to output fully functional iptables scripts for use on some other system with a completely different network configuration.

Release Notes: The broadcast blocking code has been moved higher in the chain, so it will actually get a chance to block broadcasts. The primary configuration directory has been moved from /etc/firewall.d to /etc/frankenwall.d. will detect the old configurations, and do this automatically. This was done to avoid conflicts with other packages that may try to use the firewall.d directory.
