Hi again!

One thing I've often thought about, but never asked, is if there is any kind of installed and preconfigured software firewall in SMS? I never had any problems of that kind so I suspect there is none?
Looked among the packages list for 1.6.0 and only found:
efg-1.17-noarch-1sms. If I install it, is it hard to configure? (I'm only used to the fairly simple-configured Norton, Panda and F-secure from Windows and the easy Yast2-firewall in OpenSuse)

Best regards
Lars

Thank you!

I've never heard of such, but after reading your link it didn't seem too frightening to configure. Does it work "standalone" or do I have to combine it with some application that applies the generated tables?

Regards

Lars

It's only a script rc.firewall that start at boot.
No special app or something.
