Default Installing Webmin and CSF on Debian Lenny
Firstly to administer the CSF firewall we will download and install Webmin for easier administration.

About CSF:
A Stateful Packet Inspection (SPI) firewall, Login/Intrusion Detection and Security application for Linux servers.

About Webmin:
Webmin is a web-based interface for system administration for Unix. Using any modern web browser, you can setup user accounts, Apache, DNS, file sharing and much more. Webmin removes the need to manually edit Unix configuration files like /etc/passwd, and lets you manage a system from the console or remotely

1. Installation of Webmin and CSF

# mkdir security
# cd security
# wget Download Webmin from
# dpkg -i webmin_1.480_all.deb

If the dpkg installer throws out an error that it can not install Webmin because of dependacies just run:

# apt-get -f install

The required dependacie will be installed and you can access Webmin at and login as root in it.

Next off installing the CSF:

# wget
# tar xzfv csf.tgz
# cd csf

# sh

And now you have CSF installed on your machine, currently it is running in test mode and you ned to configure it at first.
