From the little research I did on this it seems that Firestarter does
not like being started as a "service". Something along the lines of
the service trying to start before eth0 is actually up.
Starting it after the system is up seems to be the solution.
I tried Firestarter some time back and just had fits. For some reason it blocked
my CUPS server and my machine would just hang. Don't know if it's available
for Ubuntu, but I use ShoreWall.
Newbie Tip: ShoreWall is not easy to use. No point/click GUI and requires some
knowledge of iptables.
Current systems: WHAT OS, BackTrack-raw, PCLinuxOS, Peppermint OS 6, Kali Linux
and a custom Linux From Scratch server hosting a bunch of top secret stuff.
