[SLUG] Firewall


Hi
my ongoing frustrations:

1) How to setup a firewall in ubuntu? It seems suitable iptables settings do 
work but that's awefully primitive. This article did not help
http://www.linux.com/article.pl?sid=06/06/26/1556259 (no lokkit or guarddog 
can be found by apt-get)

2) How to manipulate and configure services. I CAN and have been 
sym-linking /etc/init.d/service to rc2.d/SNNservice. That too is awefully 
primitive. system -> administration -> services lists 8 services from anacron 
to ssh. What about the zillion others?

Help shows not available pictures:
each service []
with a       []
checkbox     []

Thanks
James
