Test Your Port Security

Have fun with your Ubuntu System and have the folks at GRC.com run the Shields Up port scan tests aginst your IP address and feel really good about yourself for running Linux.

Where can I download a free firewall?

Free firewalls have become very common and represent an excellent alternative to commercial firewall packages.

Most of these firewalls run under some form of Linux, FreeBSD, or OpenBSD.

In this situation, ndiswrapper and the Broadcom firmware cutter provide a functional, if not always satisfactory, solution.
