Re: [PLUG] Linux gui for firewall including real time transactions

Hash: SHA1

I downloaded this months ago to see if I could modify my existing firewall.
Unfortunately, it cannot read an existing firewall configuration file and,
equally unfortunately, neither can I.

Do you know if that feature exists now?  I don't see it on their features list
but they may just consider that ability a "given".
