The IPchains Firewalling Module, part of the RockSolid Linux Distribution, allows you to easily maintain a firewall based on ipchains with the Webmin look and feel. It has three modes: Newbie (select one of five security levels), Template (define from a table with protocols and directions what should be allowed to pass your firewall), and Expert (have the real ipchains experience by having every parameter under control by editing a script file which has all ipchains rules). Nearly all of the ipchains options are supported.
