IPchains Firewalling Webmin Module allows you to easily maintain a firewall based on ipchains with the Webmin look and feel.

This module creates a shell script containing all system calls for ipchains. You can modify the chains and the rules in these chains. All changes are written to the script, which must then be executed (possible within the module). The module can import the current system settings so that you can migrate from other tools very easy and do not need to build up the complete firewall a second time. The current version offers three different operation modes:

Newbie: Select one from 5 predefined security levels. This will activate a predefined ruleset. There are two different sets of rulesets, one for a Personal Firewall and one for a Router Firewall
Template: Select from a big list of protocols and directions which traffic should be allowed to pass through the firewall
Expert: This mode is the original one. You can define the settings for each rule in detail and change everything

The installation is quite simple: Login to your Webmin as admin (or whatever you called the adminstrative user) and go to the Webmin tab, then choose "Webmin Configuration". Now click on "Webmin Modules". Give the file in the first box (you can choose any installation method, all should work). Hit Install. Now the module is being installed.
