Hi Bernhard,

>>1. Where is debian expecting the iptables config file?
> In /etc/init.d/iptables I can read that there is an autosave file in
> /var/lib/iptables/autosave . The directory /etc/sysconfig has not
> existed on my system.

Added FIREHOL_AUTOSAVE to control the location on the config file.
If empty (default) FireHOL detects RedHat and Debian.

>>2. panic gives a firewall that allows nothing.
> Ok I have extended my iptables script with this red button feature ;)

FireHOL now blocks all traffic by itself without calling
/etc/init.d/iptables panic.

>>3. Which is the default squid port on your system?

FireHOL now has a numeric definition of squid.
