Hello!

For those, who like webmin: There is a new module to configure SuSEfirewall2
from remote within webmin without any console knowledge.

Remote FW config? That's a bit dodgy isn't it? What happens if someone "accidently" blocks IP traffic? Having said that, if the project is well thought out (ie stops newbies making obvious mistakes) it could be handy.

Cheers,

You will find it here:

Each button has an online-help with the SuSE-Comments inside the
SuSEfirewall2

I think this is a nice way for newbees to configure their firewall.

For those who know what they do this is only for information.
