Have you hear of qtfw? It is a GUI for the IPFW... It looks good, except
when you install it: let's assume you have a new born boy at the same time
at you CD to /usr/ports/net/qtfw and issue the command make install. The boy
grows up, finish elementary school, then middle school, and then graduate
from HS, the installation is still going... :-)

This may be a bit off topic however I though I'd forward it to the list as
that it could be a good addition if we wanted to get more IPFW in

A friend of mine recently ran across a good GUI tool for building iptables,
ipfilter and OpenBSD's PF rule sets. and after taking a quick and dirty look
at it  I think this could be very useful to add a IPFW module to it.

The tool is called fwbuilder available from

I lake the C++ coding experience to be of any use to developing such an
interface, but thought I's pass it along to the list in case there are any
takers. Or even if someone happens to know a good ipfilter -> ipfw
conversion tool that could be used to "get here from there".
