EnGarde offers firewall protection through the Shorewall open source firewall package, available during initial installation and afterward through the Guardian Digital Secure Network's Package Management module (Chapter 7). This flexible system lets you configure firewall protection for the server itself, or to configure EnGarde itself as a standalone multi-homed firewall.
