Abstract This constitutes the investigation and development of a user-friendly tool for firewall-configuration and -management, based on the netfilter/iptables-firewall-code residing in current Linux-kernels. It aims to be a personal firewall for Linux. It provides a KDE-GUI for netfilter/iptables that lists and edits firewall-rules, lists running processes, and lists connection-attempts to the host. Connection attempts can be accepted/dropped on the fly or permanently handled by manipulation of the firewall-rules.
