    yeah i understand that, i am purely providing a direct answert to his question which is a GUI for ICMP filtering.

    LIke i said there are other ways to achive his goals i just think Firestarter provides his need very easily.

    I personally dont use it, (have done historically)...as for running as root, i am an elitist i am afraid and think along the lines of, if you dont know why or what or how then dont

    With all due respect, please do not advise software that is no longer maintained.

    gufw / ufw are the defaults, and the fix is a "simple" edit to a configuration file, not much more difficult then copy / paste.

    If you want to advise a graphical interface , use one that is at least maintained, and be prepared to debug conflicts you create with ufw / gufw.

    Honestly, IMO, firestarter should be removed from the repos. It is no longer maintained and it conflicts with ufw / gufw, so it is not as straght forward as "install firestarter".
    There are two mistakes one can make along the road to truth...not going all the way, and not starting.
