Changes since 1.2: +24 -1 lines

Added installation instructions.

*** gawk *** (GNU awk) is required for Otherwise firewall doesn't work

On Debian / GNU Linux always install packages:

    apt-get install gawk perl iptables

and install package 'iproute' if you are using shaping:

    apt-get install iproute

Make checkout from CVS into /etc/firewall:

    cvs -d co firewall

and make some symlinks:

    cd /etc/init.d/
    ln -s /etc/firewall/ firewall
    cd /etc/rcS.d/
    ln -s ../init.d/firewall S43firewall   # S40networking make network available on Debian, so I choose #43

Copy configuration example

    cp -p /etc/firewall/default-firewall.conf /etc/default/firewall

In case of problems comment out "ANTISPOOF_IFACE" in config file (e.g. you are on local network).

And now start you firewall with command

    /etc/init.d/firewall start
