I really like using firestarter, as the realtime traffic logs and
allow/deny interface are exceedingly useful to me. However, I know that
it's been dead upstream for a long time, and I was hoping someone knew
of a well-maintained replacement.
I'm not really looking for a static firewall builder (e.g. fwbuilder or
lokkit), but something that approximates the "allow/deny current
traffic" features of firestarter.
Thanks in advance!

Replacement for firestarter?

I am new to netfilter, etc. and have been doing research recently on firewall
options and trying to learn about what is available and how it all works.
One package I came across, mason, is designed to learn and display the rules
you need as the traffic flows; perhaps you should try it.
