Quick Install Guide for Firewall Builder 1.1.2 on RedHat 9 - The RPM Method
2004-01-30

Firewall Builder (http://www.fwbuilder.org) looks pretty cool so I figured I'd check it out to see if it was worth spending more time getting friendly with the software and actually using it. This got me up and running in my lab environment within a very short period of time on RedHat 9.

First off - grab the RPM's you'll need.

I used wget to grab all the RPM's I will need. Save the list of URL's below into a file called fwbuilder_rpm_list.txt and modify the wget command below to point to where you've saved this file. You may require more depending upon what you've got installed and what you are already missing. I've included the main RPM's and dependencies that you'll need though - according to the fwbuilder documentation basic requirements (http://www.fwbuilder.org/archives/cat_installation.html#AEN9) for IPTables.

[user@myboxen somedir]$ cd /home/user
[user@myboxen user]$ wget -q -i /home/user/fwbuilder_rpm_list.txt -t 3 -w 10

Now install the RPM's.

[root@myboxen root]#
rpm -i libxml-1.8.17-8.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i libxslt-1.0.27-3.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i net-snmp-5.0.6-17.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i net-snmp-utils-5.0.6-17.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i net-snmp-utils-5.0.6-17.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i bind-9.2.1-16.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i bind-utils-9.2.1-16.i386.rpm
[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i openssl-0.9.7a-2.i386.rpm

[root@myboxen root]# rpm -i gtkmm-1.2.10-fr3.i386.rpm

Now launch the Firewall Builder

[root@myboxen root]# /usr/bin/fwbuilder &

And you should end up with this...

   

Last but not least - read the UserGuide

[root@myboxen root]# exit
[user@myboxen user]$ xpdf UsersGuide.pdf &

Happy Firewalling with Firewall Builder
