I apologize for my frankness, and probably posting in the wrong section. It's been years since I last visited the Ubuntu forums.
I am what you would call a Debian enthusiast. For many years, I have authored an advanced how-to on developing a corporate firewall system, using freely available Debian packages, without compiling or patching. Configuration is the trick. You have to become an expert on firewall configuration methodology, the same required by Cisco or any other firewall manufacturer.
Now that I have your attention, over the past seven years or so, I have been the author and developer of an advanced debian-based firewall system, fully documented in a how-to document. It has a happy home in the Debian community, among the advanced users.
Up until now, I never considered the Ubuntu community would be interested. Quite frankly, it's not for beginners. Although I wrote it to educate the beginner, you must have a willingness to learn advanced TCP/IP routing/filtering techniques.
I'm not sure if I posted this in the right Ubuntu forum. That doesn't matter. Is the Ubuntu community ready for something like this? You have to answer that, because I honestly don't know, but I am willing to give it a try.
If your community welcomes my project, without all the drama, I would be happy to help people here develop advanced corporate firewalls for their businesses. Serious people only. This is not a beginner subject.
I have no idea what response I will get to this post. Whatever. Let's see what happens.
Here is a link to my last publicly posted how-to document: http://www.4shared.com/office/nWMRt6..._firewall.html
Honestly, I have no idea what response to expect. If I'm attacked and flamed, whatever, that's what I get for trying, right?
If anyone here has done the same as I have, or has seriously attempted it, then feel free to contact me.
EDIT: Sorry about the above link. It required a login doh!
