    I would sugest Firewall Builder (www.fwbuilder.org), an frontend for
    iptables/ipchains/pf/pix which looks very much like the CheckPoint FW-1
    GUI.

    This is a very cool software package, because it makes it very easy to
    manage multiple firewalls/security policies at once without any
    problems/conflicts/whatever.
