Protecting networks with SmoothWall Express

Posted by: vouser on December 23, 2008 01:19 AM
Hello Linux friends.
I bought a Dell Inspiron 1721 with VISTA pre-installed. I did not like VISTA and installed UBUNTU 8.10 on this notebook. My wireless connection works OK.
Now here my question regarding this article.
Can I create using SmoothWall the same situation I had on my XP PC with Kerio Firewall, namely:
~ Install firewall and disallow everything.
~ As new in/out going traffic occurs, I'd get an alert giving me several options: deny, allow, create a rule, etc.
Thank you very much for spending time here sharing your knowledge.
Regards,
vouser.
