    Phoronix: Systemd Gains IP Forwarding, IP Masquerading & Basic Firewall Controls

    The systemd project is off to a quick start in 2015 with already seeing over 200 commits (granted, in 2015 systemd development skyrocketed with nearly 5,000 commits). With the newest work that's landed, the networkd component to systemd has been improved with new features...

        Should we start to call the OS Systemd/Linux instead of GNU/Linux?

          I can remember, many months ago somebody mentioned systemd will at one point implement firewall control. Except, at that time it was meant as a joke.

            Systemd is designed, and will replace most of the Linux base system - especially when dealing with light-weight VM's and containers.
            As an embedded system developer, I for one welcome my new systemd overlord.

            Don't like it? Think systemd is hurting your personal freedoms? I'd suggest you join Devuan team.
            Maybe, just maybe, if sufficient people will stop wasting time trashing systemd in Slashdot/Phoronix/IWN and get hacking instead, Devuan will actually prove to be an viable systemd alternative.

              Great news. I use systemd a couple of years already, no problems at all. Faster boot, simple to set up and manage, perfection!

                The person attempting the joke didn't have much of a clue. Considering networkd's main use case - containers, it only makes sense that it got forwarding and NAT abilities.

                  This is a good news to me.
                  Systemd is doing a fantastic job on my systems, never had to complain. I hope it will have ipsec support as well soon.
