A fw queries on the subject of freely available firewall tools. I
currently use Cheswick and Bellovin as a reference for building a firewall
(will be starting on this soon with a bit of luck), but things tend to move
on quite rapidly.
What (apart from version upgrades on things like the TCP Wrapper, Socks
and the TIS FWTK) major appearences on the scene have there been since the book,
is there a good list of free tools available anywhere? (I have a couple of www
sites but I keep getting so much packet loss while fetching from them that
they take too long to look at).
