Network Options Configuration

Here's a screen shot of my Network Options Configuration:

While not all of the options that I've selected are required, they should be sufficient for most applications. Here's an excerpt from the corresponding .config file (Note: If you are running a kernel older than 2.4.17, be sure to select CONFIG_NETLINK and CONFIG_RTNETLINK):

#

Netfilter Configuration

Here's a screen shot of my Netfilter configuration:

Note that I have built everything I need as modules. You can also build everything into your kernel but if you want to be able to deal with FTP running on a non-standard port then you must modularize FTP Protocol support.

Here's the corresponding part of my .config file:

Kernel 2.6.16 and Later Netfilter Options

Here's a screenshot of my modularized 2.6.16 Kernel config (Navigation: Networking → Networking Options → Network Packet Filtering (replaces ipchains) → Core Netfilter configuration):

Note that is is particularly important to select "Netfilter Xtables support (required for ip_tables).

Here's a screenshot of the IP Netfilter config (Navigation: Networking → Networking Options → Network Packet Filtering (replaces ipchains) → IP: Netfilter configuration):

Kernel 2.6.20 and Later Netfilter Options

Beginning with kernel 2.6.20, the Netfilter kernel configuration was completely changed. It is split into "Core Netfilter Configuration" and "IP Netfilter Configuration". The first graphic shows the link to the Netfilter configuration from the "Networking Options" menu:

The next graphic show the Core Configuration settings - these are the standard Ubuntu setting with the exception of CONNMARK Target support (Ubuntu inexplicably includes connmark match support but not CONNTRACK target support).

The next graphic shows the IP Netfilter Configuration -- these are the standard Ubuntu settings.

Minimal Configuration using Kernel 2.6.20 and later

Massimo Burcheri has contributed this minimal configuration which is suitable for securing a laptop or desktop. It is strictly a "no-frills" configuration and represents the minimum that will work with Shorewall when using only the very basic Shorewall features described in the one-interface quickstart guide.

Here are the corresponding entries from the .config file:
