Setting up a Network Firewall section

Reported by: LFS-User@… Owned by: bdubbs@…
Priority: high Milestone:
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: major Keywords:


The section in chapter 4 "Setting up a Network Firewall" needs updating. There is old kernel setup menu options and a couple of other places of obsolete text.

Also noted in the text:

"Finally, I'd like to remind you of one fact we must not forget:"

Who is the "I" in that sentence? Would a reader know who "I" is?

The start, stop and status init scripts should all be individually indexed when the changes are performed to this set of instructions.

The startup script does need to be in the bootscripts, but they should call an external file /etc/rc.d/rc.iptables. This scripts does need to be in the book.
