what does it need to run on, if Linux, why not use IPTables.
Is it for a gateway device or just your workstation?

Does anyone know of a free firewall that will allow inbound
connections based on the remote computers name, mac, and/or IP? (not
so much the IP as the name/mac).

The outbound connections do not have to be monitored and all other
computers that try to access the system that has the firewall and is
not in an authoized list should be blocked.

Thanks.
