Subject description: barry has been talking about an update for ours to handle ip6
 

I was getting a package from freecode this morning and came across firewall/sosdg.

Barry was 'talking' about updating ours as we have no ip6 components etc and it's been unsupported for some years now.

And since firewall-sosdg is also suppose to be just scripts as our old one is and is supported by the sosdg It may be of use.

I was wondering if one or more of our programmer-scripters would at least take a look at it and give a possible / not suitable even if they arn't willing to take it on as a project.

Site is: http://www.sosdg.org/freestuff/software/firewall-sosdg

thanks

If the Puppy firewall is basically a script, and the one you reference is such, will using "NoScript" in your browser disable said firewall?
I am just curious of your opinion.

No 8-bit, as I understand it, noscript only relates to the browser it's running on and web pages, not an underlying system firewall which I believe is, and think should be, tied to a ethernet/etc/wifi port.

I'm no genius at these things, but that was how it was done in the old days.

I'm not sure even, that there should be a separate firewall for each port you use, ie two ethernet ports=two firewalls or one covering both
