CentOS and Firestarter

CentOS and Firestarter

CentOS and Firestarter

Previously I was using Fedora Core as my main linux dist.  However I am giving CentOS a try and I am having dificulty setting up my firewall for connection sharing and protection.

On Fedora I was using Firestarter to configure my firewall and I loved it.  It has active log listings and easy setup.  It will not install on CentOS.  Does anyone know of any other gui based firewall I could use for the newest version of CentOS?


RE: CentOS and Firestarter

Centos is Red Hat Enterprise Linux without the redhat graphic and branding.  Did you try to download and install the RHEL version of firestarter or install using yum?

RE: CentOS and Firestarter

No I have not I simply used yum install firestarter and it came back with no packages to install.  I will download the RH version and try to install it, thanks.

RE: CentOS and Firestarter

i've also used Webmin from www.webmin.net (Linux Firewall)
