Just buy a router.  Security is too important to leave to a new Linux user.

Agreed. Even the ASDM interface for the Cisco ASA firewalls can't do what you might need to do in the CLI. If you can't write rules for iptables without a GUI then you should use a commercial firewall / router until you have a solid foundation in networking security. It's not the thing to guess at if anything is touching the internet. My boxes get literally thousands of bot hits a day:

Code: [Select]
port proto hits
443 TCP 1652
23 TCP 1400
80 TCP 512
1433 TCP 357
22 TCP 255
5060 UDP 143
53 UDP 92
3389 TCP 88
2323 TCP 84
59091 TCP 54
995 TCP 53

This is just the top of the list for the last 24 hours for three internet facing servers. The complete list has 517 different ports tested. Please don't try this at home.

Hi gabrirusti
As far as I know the type of application you are looking for does not exist in Tinycore. If you intend to ignore the good advice
given in the two replies above, then I suggest you Google for:
Code: [Select]
linux routerand pick one of the dedicated router packages available. By dedicated I mean the computer would be used for the router
and nothing else. This way you could not have other applications running on it which might compromise security.
