what is vleasytables?
« on: May 28, 2007, 08:42:06 am »
That's really my question.
I only found references to it in the announcements for the SoHo releases.

I'm running 5.8 standard.
Tried executing vleasytables as root, but found no file for it. Tried searching for a package, but did not find it in the 5.8 standard repos.

Is it the firewall configuration inside VASM?

Thank you,

It is a setup front end for iptables. I do not know
if it is available for 5.8 standard.

You could try locate vleasytables to see if it is
there.

Haven't found it yet. Not in my system or in the repos (both standard and soho).

I still haven't finished my quest for an easy to manage frontend to iptables.
(using Firestarter at the moment, though it has lots of dependencies, tried kmyfirewall but gives me lots of errors)

More than likely you will not find vleasytables in the repo since
it is part of the core install.

I have looked a couple of the front ends for iptables. Personally
I find by writing my own rule set that there is better fine grain
control.
