10. More About the Sentry Firewall Project

10.1 Supporting the Project

There are various ways one can support this project. The easiest and most common way is to simply utilize the system in a test or production environment and send me suggestions, bugs, or other such feedback. For those interested in assisting with the enhancement of any of the Sentry Firewall CD branches, please check out the TODO file located in '/SENTRY/docs/TODO' on the CD image, or online at

I do, on occasion, make the Sentry Firewall CD available for purchase. I also accept donations including hardware, software, currency, or anything else that you feel can help. Revenues from such donations or CD sales will help support the continued development of the project. If you are interested in supporting this project please feel free to email me at

10.2 About the Author

The Sentry Firewall project has only ever had a single developer, Stephen Zarkos(me) of Bellevue, Washington(USA). I began work on the project around April of 2000, probably ruining 200 CD-Rs before I got my first stable Sentry Firewall CD. And for the last two years I have continued to develop, enhance and maintain the project - give or take a few months here and there while I took a short hiatus(marriage, education, etc).

From the beginning, this project has proven to be quite popular, and has received a great deal of support and feedback from its loyal users. This kind of support has proven invaluable,and has kept me motivated to continue to develop this project. There is nothing I would ratherdo right now than work on and enhance this system, however since I do not get paid to developthis project, it is only a part-time endeavor. Even so, the positive comments and feedback Ireceive has without a doubt made this the most enjoyable project I have ever been a part of.
