Re: setting up nat



What's the big deal about shorewall. It claims to be a high level
firewall but as i see one still needs to know about networking,
interfaces,rules,zones etc. 
If you are going to that depth why not just do iptables. It's almost the
same work. It seems that shorewall is just a wrapper of iptables.

I do not intend to flame shorewall users/developers. Just trying to
understand.
