    That was an entertaining video, but I don’t see what it had to do with IPTables.

    I think you linked the wrong video. It was amusing though, watching a spot light get slagged in a microwave oven in always fun.

    Wow, wrong video. Well for those of you interested in iptables, keep an eye out for a video on putting a light bulb in a microwave.

    Ick, IPTables
    Shorewall was invented for a very good reason. Or better yet, use BSD and PF

    IPTables have kept the internet alive for this long, I would not be so fast to throw them out.

    #5: Not all of us have time to learn something new when iptables works just fine 😉

    Hell I have cPanel/WHM on my server so I use ConfigServer Security and Firewall handles IPTables and much more. You don’t need cPanel/WHM for it but if you have it it integrates nicely into the WHM GUI and makes life ever so much easier. It will do roughly a 115 point security check and tell you what needs doing (and in most cases how to do it) very nice script.
