Personally, I don't trust those programs.  I've seen the output from one
for a config that someone I know was working on, and it seemed like there
was an awful lot of unnecessary crap in it.  Learning how to use IPCHAINS
can be a little daunting at first, but you'll have a much better
understanding of firewalling and IP in general if you do.
