Re: want a simple firewall



The cheapest is a Linksys Router, which has a very simple interface.
There are also other low end router/firewalls that are all under $100
dollars. Their are also software firewalls and linux comes with
iptables built in.

I want a simple (a.k.a. cheap) firewall to protect a LAN that has an FTP

The FTP server protects itself very well, but it gets attacked so often
it logs all the attacks! (it's IP is not in DNS so they must have
sniffed it?)

Simpler the better, Thanks.
