netfilter frontend (library debug)

Vuurmuur is a middle-end and frontend for netfilter and iptables that is aimed at system administrators who need a decent firewall, but don't have netfilter specific knowledge. It converts human-readable rules into an iptables ruleset (or optional a bash script), makes netfilter logs readable, includes an ncurses GUI. This package contains the debugging symbols of the shared library.


More information about apt-get remove

Advanced Package Tool, or APT, is a free software user interface that works with core libraries to handle the installation and removal of software on Debian, Ubuntu and other Linux distributions. APT simplifies the process of managing software on Unix-like computer systems by automating the retrieval, configuration and installation of software packages, either from precompiled files or by compiling source code.

apt-get is the command-line tool for handling packages, and may be considered the user's "back-end" to other tools using the APT library.

apt-get remove is identical to install except that packages are removed instead of installed. Note that removing a package leaves its configuration files on the system. If a plus sign is appended to the package name (with no intervening space), the identified package will be installed instead of removed.
