Ipt_fw is a firewall for Linux based on iptables. It is designed for client systems. Ipt_fw outputs a shell script containing iptables commands, so inspection of the settings it creates is easy. The configuration files are made in LibreOffice?OpenOffice?Calc. Making of the firewall and a machine using the firewall are separated. It allows you to set the user level and features detailed logging, IP address blacklist management, and iptables integrity.
