    Doesn't Fedora use SELinux?

    Re: Fedora Firewall in Ubuntu?

    Fedora has SELinux and something else that's a separate firewall AFAIK. It's called system-config-firewall.py 1.2.9.

    Edit: I did a little bit of googling and found out system-config-firewall is just a frontend to iptables.

    You could do, but you may have to port it to Ubuntu on your own if someone else hasn't already done so. Alternatively you could use ufw, shorewall, guarddog or any of the other iptables frontends available for Linux.

    Yes I could but I like the layout and simplicity of Fedora's firewall. I have already tried to port it in but I haven't been able to yet.

    You could try firestarter from the repos.

    Gah, the misinformation is astounding!

    SELinux is *not* a firewall. It's an attempt at improving on the owner, group, world permissions model. It has nothing to do with networking.

    Iptables is the firewall in every single Linux distro there is.

    Firestarter is *not* a firewall. It's just a GUI to configure iptables. Ubuntu also includes ufw (uncomplicated firewall) which is a wrapper for iptables with simpler syntax, similar to OpenBSD's ipfw syntax.
