Firewall Builder is a GUI firewall management application for iptables, PF, Cisco ASA/PIX/FWSM, Cisco router ACL and more. Firewall configuration data is stored in a central file that can scale to hundreds of firewalls managed from a single UI.

A message from project maintainers:

After working on Firewall Builder for many years it is with some sadness that Vadim and I are announcing that we have suspended all development activity for this project. Firewall Builder has been a great project to work on and we have truly appreciated all the support and positive feedback that the user community has provided. Without you we wouldn’t have been able to keep things going this long.

You might be wondering why we are doing this... We had an exciting opportunity come up to start a company developing advanced security automation solutions. This was a chance of a lifetime that we just couldn’t pass up and unfortunately it means that we no longer have time available to work on improv

User Reviews

  • Poor Design, Not Working in Ubuntu 14.04.

  • One of a kind excellent product - more professional than all or most commercial tools.

  • Good GUI, but is it still actively developed? Last realease is 2 years old and in teh git/svn repository there are no new checkins...

  • Using it for many years, perfect for my customers: visual, easy, full-featured

  • I am using Firewall Builder occasionally since its first release. It is always a pleasure to setup a new firewall using this tool. I hope that during the last 10 years or even more people found this project and started using, loving and supporting it. Keep on the great work!
