Turtle Firewall Project

Turtle Firewall is a software which allows you to realize a Linux firewall in a simply and fast way.
It's based on Kernel 2.4.x and Iptables. Its way of working is easy to understand: you can define the different firewall elements (zones, hosts, networks) and then set the services you want to enable among the different elements or groups of elements.
You can do this simply editing a XML file or using the comfortable web interface Webmin.

Turtle Firewall is an Open Source project written using the perl language and realeased under GPL version 2.0 by Andrea Frigido (Frisoft).
