It was born out of the desire for an easy to configure, well documented, robust IPtables firewall. It has been made with the individual user or small business in mind. With that said, I've had plenty of e-mails from administrators that are using HLS in a large corporate environment. It was just not initially designed for such.

There is some limited error checking built into HLS. This will not prevent horrible choices when selecting which setting to enable or disable. Since the script can be used for gateway systems and internal LAN systems, many options are listed. Not every option is wise to enable for gateway system. In general, the default settings is the best way to go for the majority of gateway systems.

I don't feel the need to write a large volume of documentation as the HLS script and related files are well documented internally. Then again I am probably too close to the project to make that judgment.

For version 1.6.0 of HLS, I am going to add documentation to this page as the need for it arises. If you find something to be unclear in this documentation or inside one of the files, drop me a short e-mail stating what is unclear and why it is unclear (if possible). I'll make every effort to update the documentation to correct this.
