hello guys. im tilak from mangalore(india). im a final year engineering student and SCJP 1.4. i recently finished developing a network firewall for redhat linux v9 in core java. it uses the iptables tool. it was a great experience. i just wanted to thank all you members here. i had always come here to this forum when i had doubts about anything. thank you all..
yes Sir... i have tested it... i did the testing at college.. we got a LAN in our computer laboratory.. i simulated the internet on one side of the firewall and a LAN on the other side... and everything just worked when everything worked it was a moment of glory for me. it was the culmination of all the sleepless nights i have had.. it was a great day... im just too happy about the project...
Am I correct to assume this is really a front end, perhaps GUI, to generate the iptable rules?
Those rules are nearly opague, so a tool is a great thing. I've used 'shorewall' and 'guarddog' with success in the past

In general, folks post code all the time. I'm not a sherrif, so I can't answer officially.
Most folks put some sort of license terms at the top of the code, in a comment, saying "this code is public domain" or "this is released with Apache license" etc.
if its big, you probably want to host it somewhere else, and just post a link.
thanks for the reply Pat. it is a GUI for the user but i would rather say that there is a lot of back-end logic involved it is a jar file and has around 6,000 lines of code.. it isnt very big in size... [ May 11, 2008: Message edited by: tilak d kumar ]
