Unearthed by Chris Stansbury


“floppyfw is a static router with the firewall-capabilities in Linux.

“Although it is called a firewall it does not have all the functionality we are expecting from a firewall of today. It is basically a Screening router or Packet filtering firewall. (Although many firewalls sold today are just this.)

“It can of course be used with cable modems and everything else giving you an ethernet port to connect to. It is also used as a basic firewall at some sites that do not need proxying proxies.

“The 1.9 series has stateful packet filtering.”
