Vuurmuur is a linux firewall manager. It takes a human readable rule syntax and turns it into the proper iptables commands. It supports logviewing, traffic shaping, connection killing and a lot of other features. Suricata is a relatively new network IDS/IPS. It's multithreaded for performance, supports IDS and IPS modes, can extract files from HTTP streams and has a lot of other features. Fedora 17 includes both Vuurmuur and Suricata in its repository. In this howto I'll describe how to get a functional IPS using only Fedora packages.
