No it is not. I use fwbuilder and like it a lot but if you need a command line
you could look at gShield or shorewall. I used gShield for a long time but it
is limited to 2 interfaces and I needed more. I have heard a lot of good things
about shorewall but I have never used it.

FWIW, fwbuilder's interface is a lot like checkpoint. So if you have any
experience with checkpoint it should be easy. If you are starting from scratch
I strongly suggest you read the fine manual. It is indeed a good manual and has
a lot of examples.
