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...

tilak, I just pm'd you. If it is small and you wrote it yourself - just put it up. If there are any issues we have plenty of very smart and well informed moderators for edge conditions.



{ message edit: 6000 lines is probably too much for posting. It will be the logic that we are interested in. How big is the logic? }
