I have used a Linux GUI firewall called Firestarter. It works okay, is very simple and sets up in no time. It's not an industrial strength, application level firewall but is a simple packet filter with basic logging. For home or SOHO use you can't get any easier. I have also heard good things about Smoothwall, but never used it myself.

Subject: [fw-wiz] Linux Firewall Distributions
Does anyone have experience with Linux based Firewall/Router distributions ?
I am looking for a cost-effective firewall capable of handling three
security domains (Internal Network, the Internet, and a DMZ) for a SOHO.
A hardened linux box running NetFilter/IPtables with three network cards
looks like a good fit.
However, I would also welcome suggestions regarding low-budget hardware
firewalls meeting these requirements.
I believe that the now defunct Linux Router Project
(http://www.linuxrouter.org/) has left some successors:
Please let me know if you have used one of these linux firewall
distributions and what your experience was (installation, configuration,
