$Id$ FireHOL, an iptables stateful packet filtering firewall for humans! Copyright (C) 2003 - 2013 Costa Tsaousis <email@example.com> LICENSE ------- This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 2 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.

You should have received a copy of the GNU General Public License along with this program; if not, write to the Free Software Foundation, Inc., 59 Temple Place, Suite 330, Boston, MA 02111-1307 USA DOCUMENTATION ------------- If you received this program in as a RPM, documentation should be installed at /usr/share/doc/firehol-X.XX. Otherwise, documentation should be available in the doc/ directory of the .tar.bz2 archive you received. In any case, you can also find the documentation online, at: http://firehol.sf.net INSTALLATION ------------ To make FireHOL start at boot time you have to add it to the startup procedure of your operating system. Three things are needed to start FireHOL properly: 1. Move firehol.sh to the directory where your startup scripts exist and rename it to firehol (i.e. remove the .sh). 2. Make sure FireHOL is called with something like: /path/to/startup/scripts/firehol start 3. Make sure there is a valid configuration file in /etc/firehol/firehol.conf This is it. IMPORTANT NOTES --------------- If you decide to use FireHOL regularly (or permanently) you have to understand that it will control your firewall and therefore be a key point of your security. You should do something to be notified of bugs or other kind of problems as soon as they appear. I suggest to subscribe to the notification engine of freshmeat.net under this project or to monitor FireHOL's file releases at sourceforge.net. Both of these services will keep you anonymous (to me) but will update you if and when new releases become available.
