What firewalls work with IPv6?
We abandoned all else for fwbuilder *years* ago, and it has only gotten
amazingly better. It supports iptables, IPv4/IPv6, BSD's ipfw, Cisco
IOS, etc... it will install and activate the rules across the network...
it is one *amazing* application.


Build your servers' firewall configurations and click install. In a
beautiful GUI with zero loss of flexibility.

zypper ar -cf -n 'Firewall Builder' \ fwbuilder
rpm --import PACKAGE-GPG-KEY-fwbuilder.asc
zypper refresh
zypper install fwbuilder

Enjoy. I only wish other aspects of Linux administration had tools of similar
quality to fwbuilder.

I tried to install using Yast software management and get this error:

#### YaST2 conflicts list - generated 2010-06-04 11:29:43 ####

nothing provides needed by libfwbuilder-4.0.1-b29

[ ] do not install fwbuilder-4.0.1-b2950.suse11.2.i586

However, is part of the standard C++ shared library. This is on OpenSUSE 11.0.
