Re: Google Summer of Code 2006: iptables GUI



I had been jotting down few of my thoughts about similar ideas. Some
of the highlights were like:

   1. Firewall control per interface
   2. Override main system firewall
   3. Connection sharing {to one or more interfaces}
   4. Control for systcl parameters specific to interface
   5. QoS and ToS
   6. Bluetooth interface support
   7. Dial-in support :-)
   8. Extended dial-out controls to compare with kppp to some extent

Also a new protocol support and mime extension for network
connections. I have also filled a bug (enhancement) request. But my
ideas are prone to flaws, and I'll welcome any of the feedback.
