CentOS Based Firewall Document

I have just completed the first draft of a document on buildign a CentOS based firewall and was curious if anyone would like to proof it for me. Comments and suggestions would be welcome.

The firewall OS is CentOS v4.2. It also has Webmin, Squid, and DansGuardian loaded. For firewall rule manipulation it uses FWBuilder in Gnome on the firewall itself. X is not continuously ran. THe system itself boots in runlevel 3. X gets started via VNC server only when you tell it to for firewall rule set manipulation.

Keep in mind that the purpose of this doc is how to build the firewall from bare metal, not how to configure firewall rules or routing or anything of the like. It does, however, cover some pretty decent (in my opinion) steps on hardening the OS somewhat to make it safer on "the big bad Internet".

You will have to specifically ask for the doc though because I don't wanna spam the forums with my silly document.

Hmmm...It's not allowing me to PM you either.

Edit: Nevermind. I think I figured it out.

I am also looking for an enterprise class firewall based on Linux. I feel that GuardDog and IPCOP are not in that class where performance and security is more important than a nice GUI.

I would like to have a copy of the document as well. Pls send it to asaf@ieee.org

thanks
