Joseph Guarino — Evolutionary IT — www. Just post all of it it would have made for a better read in my opinion. I think the invisible firewall feature of pfsense makes it an interesting addition to an IPCop protected network, especially if the tutorial author could persuaded to publish it on howtoforge. Thanks for dropping by.


My hope is that more firewalls share code and expertise to improve the open firewall options that consumers have. Thank you for taking the time to write this very helpfull tutorial. I hope you’ll also cover using ipcop for vpn access on the next tutorial. I do appreciate your kind words. I had installed ip-cop long before. Really it is a great free solution. And some add-ons can be applied to ip-cop such as p2p blocking, content filtering and intrusion detection.

Thanks so much for your kind words. I hope that you get a chance to check out our second installment. I have been using IPCop for several years documebtation and am very happy about it. This article is very well-written and looking documentatin to its second part. If both the parts are available togehter in a printer-friendly version, its usfulness would increase. Hey, There is the link below and these will also be on the Internet Archive in the near future once the second installment is completed.

For those of you that do not know about the Internet Archive it is please do check it out at http: I find IPCop to be easy to use and setup but not very extensible.

The free home version of Clarkconnect may not be that flexible for more demanding tasks? If you want more, don’t those Clarkconnect modules and addons often cost money? The IPCop community has been incredible and I am documejtation happy with the project in every aspect.

As well Klarkconnect dovumentation not as open and transparent a development community more focused on creating a commercial software NOT a usable free software GPL’d firewall. For this and many other documentatoon it documenttaion a superior Linux firewall.

List of IPCop Addons. Hello Peekj, I have used both as well as the vast majority of commercial firewalls and have ended up sticking with IPCop. For me it does more of what I want and has an amazing support community. What about other commercial products? I use IPCop on my own networks and on dozens of clients and I am very happy with it. Keep up the good work IPCop team.


I just might cover them in the future. It’s based on OpenSSL for secure transport. Copfilter is another of my favorites which has my vote for inclusion in future releases of IPCop. If you don’t want to dedicated a machine as a firewall, Shorewall is great. I have been using it for 4 years on my home network. Everyone should check it out http: I wish you could do an article regarding a fix for that. Most firewalls allow connections from the trusted LAN Green out to the internet.?

Check out BOT http: Documentatlon I always say one cannot look at a documenfation as a panacea but as part of a set of security tool, techniques and processes.?

Although not an official part of IPCop, there are many addons, some based on the addon server, that add additional functionality to IPCop, such as advanced QoS, e-mail virus checking, traffic summary, extended interfaces for controlling the proxy, and many more. I’am looking forward to run and configure services on ipcop firewall, where do i find them such as proxy or more. This feature is only available to subscribers.

Below the howto is a “printer friendly” link. The link will be placed when the series is complete. It would be good to cover this and increase the docuentation of IPCop and Zerina. The main difference among other linux firewall is that is its interface is more simple.

Besides, Ipcop firewall has been added to our useful resources. Hello, I do concur. Thanks for your comments, Joe. As a user of Ipcop for many years now I have to concur that it is a great gnu firewall.
