How deep would you like to go.....

This deep:
http://www.ipcortex.co.uk/wp/fw.rhtm (http://www.ipcortex.co.uk/wp/fw.rhtm)

This deep:
http://ornellas.apanela.com/dokuwiki/pub:firewall_and_adv_routing (http://ornellas.apanela.com/dokuwiki/pub:firewall_and_adv_routing)

Or maybe this deep:
http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:_Ch14_:_Linux_Firewalls_Using_iptables (http://www.linuxhomenetworking.com/wiki/index.php/Quick_HOWTO_:_Ch14_:_Linux_Firewalls_Using_iptables)

And when you consider the last link considers itself to be a "Quick how to"... you can see the "network routing and security" rabbit hole goes down and down and down and down and.....

Or perhaps the Cisco route, where you can spend a few years of your life, and £10,000+ becoming a CCNA Associate, and CCNA Security Associate, before even being allowed on this course:
