		 The ultimate Linux firewall automation tool.


TuxFrw is a complete firewall automation tool for GNU/Linux.

Currently, TuxFrw consists of script  files  created  to  ease  the  way  Linux
IPTables firewall rules are configured. With TuxFrw, an user can configure  his
own Linux / Netfilter based network firewall, simply passing  some  IP  address
numbers and other services utilization policies. Start  with  a  default  basic
firewall, then streamline it further using your skills allied  with  the  power
of TuxFrw modularity. TuxFrw is  the  ultimate  IPTables-based  firewall  tool,
taking full advantage of this great Linux firewall framework.

Although its functionallity is not so wide, our intention is to enhance  TuxFrw
in such a way that leads it into a real complete network firewall tool.

Visit TuxFrw home page and get its latest version at


- Linux kernel version 3.x (or higher) with NetFilter support;
- IPTables version 1.4.x (or higher)


Read the INSTALL file for installation instructions.
