11.3. The Management Workstation

The management workstation runs fwbuilder, so it needs X11 and all other libraries fwbuilder depends upon. Follow Installation instructions in Chapter 2 to install fwbuilder on the machine. Start fwbuilder by typing "fwbuilder" at a shell prompt to test it.

Once you get the Firewall Builder GUI up and running on the management workstation, you need to build a firewall policy and, eventually, compile it and install on the firewall. Other sections of this Guide describe all steps of this process. Configuration of the built-in policy installer and different ways to use it to install and activate generated policy on the dedicated firewall can be found in Chapter 10.
