    I am a newbie and am about to setup a firewall of my server. I've read linux security books about iptables and at the same time noticed that APF is recommended for cpanel. My question is what are the advantages of using iptables alone and APF, repectively. Shall I take the painful steps to learn everything about iptables or shall I better use a seemingly simpler option, i.e. the APF? Please advice.
