Firewalls should be customized. They way the scripts are ATM, its
difficult to offer a general script in the book that is easily
customized and still could be included in the package.
OTOH, if all the customization stuff beginning with "iptables -a" were
to be read from a file in ... maybe /etc/sysconfig/net.../fw-up, for
example, it becomes more reasonable. Similar for an fw-down thingy.
Module insertion could be handled similarly.
There'd be a little work, restructure of BLFS text, three or four
additional file creations, etc.
On my old RH 6.2, I handle that stuff in custom config scripts for the
old ipchains, predecessor to iptables.
NOTE: I'm on a new ISP, if I'm in your address book ...
Fix line above & use it to mail me direct.
