    About: NARC (Netfilter Automatic Rules Configurator) is a  free firewalling
    package for Netfilter/Iptables,  released under the BSD license. It
    attempts to  simplify the setup of a firewall (stateful packet  filter) via
    the iptables tools. It is a bash shellscript  that generates (hopefully)
    sensible and secure  rules for Netfilter based on a simple configuration 
    file. It features quick setup via a simple  configuration file, connection
    tracking (and  fragmentation reassembly), customized logging,  probe
    detection (TCP & UDP), and much more.
    Changes: Default location of /etc/narc.conf moved to /etc/narc/narc.conf. 
    Default location of /usr/bin/narc moved to /usr/sbin/narc. iptables init.d
    script modified to support chkconfig for Redhat users, and path info
    modified.  Implemented port range matching implemented (allows for more
    than 15 ports).  /etc/narc-custom.conf added to allow execution of custom
    commands.  AUTH_REJECT improved. FORWARD_LAN_TO_DMZ fixed. Optimizations in
    rule reordering and logging, more sanity checking of the config file, and
    general bugfixes added.
