    1 Firestarter
    2 ===========
    3   The latest version of Firestarter can always be found at
    4             <http://www.fs-security.com>
    5 
    6 Firestarter is a complete firewalling tool for Linux. Use the firewall
    7 creation wizard to create a basic firewall, then streamline it further
    8 using the powerful dynamic rules modifiers. Open and close ports with
    9 a few clicks, or stealth your services giving access only to a select 
   10 few. Watch the real-time hit monitor as attackers probe your machine
   11 for open ports, in vain. Firestarter takes full advantage of GNOME but
   12 will work in most environments.

   14 See the "INSTALL" file for installation instructions.
