After using ipchains for some time, I needed to take advantage of the new iptables implemented in the new kernels. And this book is perfect for it.
Easy to read and very well documented. Like all SAMS :) books. Briefly, if you want to quickly get up-and-running a SECURE Linux server - you must have this book!
