21     Firewalls all good and fun, but what do you do when you need to make rapid,
22 drobbins 1.1 complex changes to your netfilter-based firewall? Instead of feverishly
23     hacking away at a complex master firewall script, use the dynfw Dynamic
24     Firewall Tools. This collection of robust bash scripts have been designed to
25     work with nearly any existing netfilter-based firewall configuration. By using
26     these scripts, you'll be able to make near-immediate changes to your firewall
27     configuration without risk of misconfiguration, resulting in vastly improved
28     network security and responsiveness. The dynfw firewall scripts were
29     originally featured in <uri

31 fox2mike 1.5 IBM developerWorks article</uri>.
