kmyfirewall(1) KDE iptables front-end to easily create a Personal Firewall


kmyfirewall [Qt-options] [KDE-options] [URL]


This manual page documents briefly the kmyfirewall KDE Application. This manual page was written for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution because the original program does not have a manual page.

KMyFirewall attempts to make it easier to setup iptables based firewalls on Linux systems. It will be the right tool if you like to have a so called "Personal Firewall" running on your Linux box, but don't have the time and/or the interest to spend hours in front of the iptables manual just to setup a Firewall that keeps the "bad" people out
