[MVLUG] Meeting idea for Monday: firewall & network security

Do we have a meeting topic for Monday?

Antonio brought up that he didn't know how to firewall a Linux machine 
the last meeting; would this be a good topic for a "roundtable"-type 
meeting (i.e. what we did for backups)?

I'm happy with discussing basic network probing w/ nmap (i.e. find out 
what services you have running that you didn't know you had running) and 
firewalling w/ Shorewall, a set of bash/perl scripts that make setting 
up firewalls on Linux extremely easy.

It'd be interesting to see what others do.
