This was the one I found from Linux Format. I looks really good.
KMyFirewall attempts to make it easier to setup IPTables based firewalls on Linux systems.
It will be the right tool if you like to have a so called "Personal Firewall" running on your Linux box, but don't have the time and/or the interest to spend hours in front of the IPTables manual just to setup a Firewall that keeps the "bad" people out.
There is also the possibility to save entire rule sets, so you only have to configure your rule set one time and then you can use it on several computers giving each of them a similar configuration (p.e. school networks, office, university etc.). For a complete list of the features have a look at the Features section
Programs can't do any magic so you still will have to know what your firewall should do to setup your rule set. KMyFirewall just tries to help you as much as possible, but you decide what it will do.
