Best firewall options
« on: March 27, 2022, 01:36:46 PM »
Hi there, Ive spent a good chunk of the weekend fiddleing around with tinycore in a headlesss setup - its awesome, thanks to all contributors!
One thing thats aludeing me (ive tried insite: searching on the forums / wiki) is a nice solution for filtering incomming ssh requests.
As I understand from my searching sshd hasnt been compiled with tcp wrapper support and im unsure which combination of packages I would need to get iptables working.

Is there anything out there people would recommend? I just want to restrict sshd access to local subnets and a couple of external ips.
