01micko recently published a firewallstate-2.5 source package in another thread, but it is set up for the new autostart mechanism. I am no expert, but I was having a play around with some modifications to the scripts and the source in order to make a version for the current and recent (non Woof-CE) Puppies which use /root/Startup

I have also noticed that in many cases if you click the menu entry multiple times you get multiple instances of the icon/applet in the tray. My script now looks to see if firewallstate is already running and if so it just gives a message box and does not launch another instance. Others may be able to come up with something more sophisticated.

Apart from this, what I have so far is the nice new green and red shield tray icons. The icon on the exit button of the Firewall On/Off dialog box is fixed. You can start it from console with the command firewallstate (is this a good idea?). It restarts if you reboot or restart X but if you right-click and exit it won't then restart unless you do so manually from the menu or from console.

Everything seems to be working as it should and of course this version does not call out to external hosts to determine your WAN IP. Apparently some people are concerned about that.

In case anyone wants to take a look or give it a try I will name it as version 2.5.1 and upload here:-

Probably best to remove the old files and folders (if present) before installing, eg:-
/root/Startup/firewallstaterun
/usr/local/firewallgtk (directory and contents)
/usr/local/firewallstate (directory and contents)

Very nice.
Would it be difficult to be able to use or make and save presets for the firewall?

Even if it was just sh files on a basic level, it might be good for different setups that one could change at will.

Hi Oscar, does your version have the ability for autostarting as you've mentioned exists in the 01micko version, or did you remove that ability. I'm quite keen on having the firewall autostart function combined with the 'don't connect to external hosts' thing you've incorporated here.

My version autostarts via the file in /root/Startup as normal.
Only the very recent Woof-CE Puppies will have the new autostart mechanism.
