  • Mason 0.12.0, the free automated firewall builder (1999-04-03 11:50:41)
    "Mason is a tool that helps create a custom Linux packet filtering firewall. One starts up Mason on the machine(s) that need to do packet filtering, then does all the normal things that this neetwork needs to allow or deny. Mason creates ipchains/ipfwadm rules that can be used in a finished firewall. It includes support files to provide a rudimentary menu for building and a shell that implements the current firewall in SysV boot scripts used in most Linux distributions."
