- uruk: Very small firewall script, for configuring iptables
Uruk is a wrapper for Linux iptables. A very simple shell script, but
useful if you need similar (but not the same) packet filtering configurations
on lots of hosts. It uses a template file, which gets sourced as a shell
script, to get lists of source addresses, allowed to use specific network
services. Listing these groups of allowed hosts and allowed services is all
what's needed to configure your box.
Main difference with other firewall setup tools: uruk is just a very small
(just 11K!) shell script, no gui, no interactive setup, no default
configuration. You'll like this if you'd rather not have lots of (probably
buggy) code between you and your filtering rules.
