IPTables has always been some sort of blind spot for me. Now, creating my own firewall rules seems to be something I might even be able to do (although I probably won't). Thank you for the conveniently short and great introduction.

Thank you

I cannot tell you what a great service you are providing to the Linux community with tutorials like these. Now home Linux users like me can protect my network. Part 1 was such an inspiration to me that I actually bought a book on IPTables. However your tutorial made it a lot easier for me to take the first step into IPtables. It also made the book a lot easier to read.

White Paper
Private PaaS for the Agile Enterprise

If you already use virtualized infrastructure, you are well on your way to leveraging the power of the cloud. Virtualization offers the promise of limitless resources, but how do you manage that scalability when your DevOps team doesn’t scale? In today’s hypercompetitive markets, fast results can make a difference between leading the pack vs. obsolescence. Organizations need more benefits from cloud computing than just raw resources. They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
