Description:

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.




Changelog:

Hi,
Donatas Glodenis provides KMyFirewall 1.1.1 and patched kdesudo packages for Ubuntu/Kubuntu at http://dg.lapas.info/share/paketai/ubuntu-gutsy/

thanks for his support!
greetz,
chris

Hi,
As reported by Donatas Gloden the installation process in version 1.1.0 is seriously broken - IT DOES NOT INSTALL A VALID SCRIPT!

So please Update to v1.1.1 that i've just released on sf.net if you are using 1.1.0!

---

Hi,
With great thanks to Donatas Glodenis here is a much better fix solving the "kdesu -t issue". Here are the instructions form his email:

The kdesudo version 2.1, available for the coming version of Ubuntu Hardy
Heron (8.4), already has the -t option implemented. You can build your own
kdesudo package for gutsy by following these steps:

1. Download these packages from the repositories:
$ wget http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdesudo/kdesudo_2.1-0ubuntu1.dsc
$ wget
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdesudo/kdesudo_2.1.orig.tar.gz
$ wget
http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/k/kdesudo/kdesudo_2.1-0ubuntu1.diff.gz

2. setup sources:
$ dpkg-source -x kdesudo_2.1-0ubuntu1.dsc

3. Build package:
$ cd kdesudo-2.1/
$ sudo apt-get build-dep kdesudo
$ dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -b

4. Install package
$ cd ../
$ sudo dpkg -i kdesudo*.deb

Here is the apt-get source for KMyFirewall and the patched KDEsudo

Release of KMyFirewall 1.1.0

Well, it has been a while since the last release, almost 2 years ;)

Sorry for the slow progress until now, but i hope the new KMyFirewall 1.1.0 release will excuse the long waiting.

This release includes lots of cool new features (e.g. multi target configuration, remote installation etc.) and fixes all known bugs. Again the document format has changed a bit but i did my best to make it compatible with rule sets created using v1.0.x


Multi Target Configuration & Remote firewall control

With KMyFirewall 1.1.0 you are now able to define so called Targets (accessible in the MyNetwork View), those are the computers you like to manage using KMyFirewall.
After configuring a target (IP address and SSH port) you simply set it as the "Active Target" and edit it's rule set as you did for localhost. The only requirement is that the target allows SSH connections and has a bash shell installed.
With the help of KDE's KIO technology you can install, run, show configuration etc. on the remote host, as you did on localhost before.
All communication between KMyFirewall and the target is encrypted using SSH.


New Undo/Redo Engine

As consequence to the lots of trouble the current undo/redo implementation has made, i re-designed it and as result the engine is faster, more reliable and much easier to use as a developer.


Custom Protocols (Generic Interface)

This solves on of the most annoying problems of the Generic Interface. In KMyFirewall's settings dialog you now can define your own protocols.
So if you find any important protocol still missing, simply create it and if you like send it to chubinger_AT_irrsinnig_DOT_org so that i can add it for the next release. (For the future i plan to implement a KHotNewStuff service to allow online updates of the protocol library.)


Improved Auto Configuration

The auto configuration capabilities have been moved to a small bash script and therefore can also be used for remote targets. If your system is not detected correctly please send your configuration to chubinger_AT_irrsinnig_DOT_org so that i can add them to the auto configuration script.

So finally i just like to say have fun managing your firewalls using KMyFirewall 1.1.0
Feedback and burg reports are very welcome.

greetings,
Chris

-----

Release of KMyFirewall 1.0

Important: As the file format used to save the rulesets has changed, rulesets created with KMyFirewall < 1.0beta1 WILL NOT work, don't even try it!

Since the last stable release KMF has been completely rewritten in order to be even more flexible and on the other hand easier to use.

New plugin framework

Most parts of the application has been rewritten introducing a plugin framework that allows to add new IPTables rule option editors to be written within a few hours (well maybe days depends on the options complexity :).
This will allow us (and contributors) to easily implement the fast growing number of IPTables ruleoptions without the need of understanding the whole application.

The backend generating the IPTables rules itself has been extended to allow the registration of new rule options by defining them in an XML description file. For a detailed description about how to write such plugins have a look at the application handbook in the current CVS version.
So feel free to contribute plugins, there are lots of options still not implemented.

New Easy-To-Use platform independent interface

As I often got mails complaining about the to complex nature of KMF and the very limited possibilities the wizard provides i simply removed the wizard and implemented a completely new interface.


Features of the new Interface

As the new interface works on an abstract descrioption of the generated rules the new plugin structure allows us top implement script compilers that support other firewalling backends than just netfilter/iptables.

To support a new tool kit it is required to write a compiler and an installer plugin for the new framework. Currently just the iptables/linux compiler and installer is implemented. As with the rule option plugins of the IPTables interface it shouldn't bee too much work to develop those plugins.

IPTables vs. Generic interface

The main difference between those two interfaces is that the new Generic Interface is OS and toolkit independant while the IPTables interface is an improved version of the well known KMF GUI and therefore tight bound to the netfiler/iptables toolkit and can therefore only be used with Linux as operating system.


Why two different interfaces?

Especially when concerning security related applications you (as developer) need to decide if you like to build an application used by expert users (e.g. experienced system administrators) or if you like to provide a tool that everybody can handle.

It hasn't been an easy decision to implement one interface for each user group but after pondering about concepts to merge those two requirements into one interface we decided that it is much better to separate them.
This allows us to concentrate on the wishes and wanted features for each of the user groups.

 expand protocol lib

 
 by dgvirtual on: Feb 15 2006
 
Score 50%

I think KMyFirewall needs an easy way to add protocols to the protocol library. Because now, if I want to add edonkey or gnutella protocols, the only thing to do is to go into editing iptables themselves.

But I like it - since, to compare to Guarddog, here you can set a general policy, and then make exceptions. Hate to check all the protocols in Guarddog...

Hi,

Well this is an issue i'm working on. I just didn't had the time to finish that implementation.

But until the editor is available you may add your protocols to the protocollibrary.xml file installed in %APPDIR%/protocols/
It's a simple XML file so you shouldn't have problems to unserstand the syntax.

best regards,
chris

Thank you Chris,

could you perhaps refer me to a source that would list the ports that the programs on Linux most often use?

In case I create some valuable improvements to the file you mentioned, I would forward my work to you as well :)

Hi,

I've taken the port numbers from the /etc/services file and googled a bit for each to find out which ports the protocolls actaually need to work in an connection tracking environment.
So no sorry, i do not any reliable source for that - thats also a reason why the list is still very small - maybe looking at the guarddog sources can help with that but i didn't had any time to do that yet.

thanks for the helkp offer & greetings,
chris

 Unusable

Hi, since KMyFirewall 1.0, it became unusable on my Gentoo system. In the generic interfece, protocols appear empty, and in both interfaces when I load a file regardless it's a template or a saved one, when KMyFirewall opens it, its rules are thrown away

Hi I tryed with simple installation from sources, but the behaviour is exactly the same... opening any template or source file results in having a complete empty tree from which to start off... I'll try to install kmyfirewall in an own directory... we'll see...

Well, I've installed, as a test, kmyfirewall with:
./configure --prefix=/opt/kmyfirewall.
Then I've added
export PATH=/opt/kmyfirewall/bin:$PATH;
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/kmyfirewall/lib64 (since I'm on amd64)
KDEDIRS=/opt/kmyfirewall:$KDEDIRS

Then I ran kmyfirewall (after cleaning its saved preference in my home). I created a file from a Workstation Temaplate and on the Konsole it printed this infos:

kmyfirewall: WARNING: KXMLGUIClient::setXMLFile: cannot find .rc file kmfgenericinterfaceparetui.rc
kmyfirewall: WARNING: KXMLGUIClient::setXMLFile: cannot find .rc file kmfinstallerpluginui.rc
kmyfirewall: WARNING: KXMLGUIClient::setXMLFile: cannot find .rc file kmfiptablescompiler.rc

Which are a clear message of misconfiguration. Where am I wrong?

Hi,

I've never tried to istall it into a seperate directory, so plese make shure that all environment variables are set right when running ./configure - the debian_woody_configure script does that for debian based systems - so ther you should see the option needed.

I am having problems with Kernel configuration. As you probably know, the list of options in the Kernel has become rather long.

I presume that your application requires certain Kernel options enabled to work. Could you PLEASE share this information with us!!!

It would be a GREAT help if you could include a text file that listed the options in the linix/.config file that need to be set to build a Kernel that would work with your app.

Hi,

As far as i remember you need at least the SynCookie support and the standard iptables modeules (connection tracking*, filtering, mangle, nat etc.) enabled.
For more detailed information plese send me the error you get and i'll try to help as good as can.

best regrads,
chris

Hi,

Make shure that you have the QT3 development headers installed - depending on the distribution they are normaly called qt-devel or libqt-dev, shouldn't be too hard to find out the right package name.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
