Hi,
I am using RED HAT and want to know what the best firewall and antivirus apps are. Can anyone help?
Thanks

Hi JabberUK,

Goto this thread, and then visit the link to "HOWTO: Set a custom firewall (iptables) and Tips [Beginners edition]" iptables firewall thread at the Ubuntu forum. Install the scripts such that iptables is initialized when you boot up - i.e. the capability is inherent in the Linux kernel, but needs rules to initialize it to make it work.

Clam AV is free for download from its website.

I recommend also getting chkrootkit and rkhunter.
