Is my router (linksys) enough to keep intruders from hacking my linux box, or what do I choose in virtualmins listing for firewall. It tells me I dont have shorewall firewall installed, and in linux firewall in virtualmin it shows me
No IPtables firewall has been setup yet on your system. Webmin can set one up for you, to be stored in the save file /etc/webmin/firewall/iptables.save, with the initial settings based your selection of firewall type below..
Allow all traffic Do network address translation on external interface: eth0loOther..
Block all incoming connections on external interface: eth0loOther..
Block all except SSH and IDENT on external interface: eth0loOther..
Block all except SSH, IDENT, ping and high ports on interface:
Which if any do I need to pick? I only want to run http, ftp, and mail for people to use their own mail program to pickup their mail.
When I had the suse 10.0 firewall on, you couldnt reach any site, when I turned it off the sites were reachable again. So I had to turn it off in the suse 10.0 firewall option to only run if I turn it on manually, and it didnt have an option for ftp.
So what do I choose in the virtualmins linux firwall, as listed above so that it works properly, or should I try to find shorewall firewall?
Thank you, Adam
