The Perfect Linux Firewall Part I -- IPCop Print E-mail
User Rating:      How can I rate this item?
Source: HowToForge - Posted by Benjamin D. Thomas   
Firewalls This document describes how to install the GNU/Linux GPL IPCop firewall and create a small home office network. In the second installment we cover creating a DMZ for hosting your own web server or mail server and the Copfilter proxy for filtering web and email traffic. This is intended to be a quick and dirty overview on creating a IPCop firewall and comes without warranty of any kind!

The IPCop project is a GNU/GPL project that offers an exceptional feature packed stand alone firewall to the internet community. Its comprehensive web interface, well documented administration guides, and its involved and helpful user/administrative mailing lists make users of any technical capacity feel at home. It goes far beyond a simple ipchains / netfilter implementation available in most Linux distributions and even the firewall feature sets of commercial competitors.

ICSA CertificationWritten by JLG on 2006-07-28 16:53:04
I work for a government agency and I would like to see IPCop get ICSA Certified so I can make use of its awesomeness here at work. If someone from IPCop's development team reads this, PLEASE OH PLEASE get certified as a SECURE FIREWALLING SOLUTION by somebody (like ICSA) so big companies with standards can say "Yes, this meets our criteria." Thanks!
