LinWiz - Linux configuration file and scripting Wizards.
LinWiz - Linux configuration file and scripting Wizards.

A (growing) collection of on-line wizards - for creating complex linux configuration files and scripts using simple web-enabled point-and-click methods.

LinWiz://SimpleFirewall was the first of these - launched in March 2003, now replaced by LinWiz://PersonalFirewall and LinWiz://ServerFirewall.

LinWiz://PersonalFirewall - 'Novice' iptables wizard for personal Linux workstations

This wizard is suitable for creating a very simple "iptables" configuration for a linux workstation, with a single network card, not acting as a router (not forwarding IP traffic) and not providing any IP services to other hosts.

It allows you to block a number of common IP 'exploits' and sets up your system in a highly 'locked down' manner - exposing no IP services to other systems, but not restricting the internet or other IP services (such as Web, Ftp, Mail etc) that you can use. It produces a file that can be read by the "iptables-restore" utility (such as is used by recent RedHat, Mandrake and other linux distributions) or a classic "rc.firewall" shell script.

LinWiz://ServerFirewall - iptables for personal Linux servers

This wizard creates an intermediate-level "iptables" configuration for a simple linux server, hosting popular services such as "Apache" web server, FTP, SSH, Telnet, NFS etc. This is suitable for servers with a single network card that does not act as an IP router (not forwarding IP traffic). The tool allows you to set up ...

Blocking of common IP attacks and exploits.
Definition of which IP services running on your server you are willing to allow access to.
Controlled NFS access (this is more complex than Web servers). The tool provides all the information you need to set this up.
Filtering of the IP addresses and/or MAC addresses that are permitted (or refused) access to your services.
Logging of rejected IP packets.

It produces a file that can be read by the "iptables-restore" utility (such as is used by recent RedHat, Mandrake and other linux distributions) or a classic "rc.firewall" shell script.
