iptables is the userspace command line program used to configure the Linux packet filtering ruleset. It is targeted towards system administrators. Since Network Address Translation is also configured from the packet filter ruleset, iptables is used for this, too. The iptables package also includes ip6tables. ip6tables is used for configuring the IPv6 packet filter

The sitesummary system makes it easier to keep track of a lot of machines, by allowing each machine to report their existence once a day to a central collector, and using this collector to make summary reports about the hosts.

This package is the client part, reporting in to the server after boot and once a day.
