KMyFirewall ships with two different GUI interfaces.
The Generic Interface is an abstract view on what kind of netwok traffic may or may not pass yout computer. The rules are generated by a compiler plugin so that it is possible to generate scripts for other plattforms p.e. OpenBSD/pf then GNU/Linux/iptables (well currently just the iptables compiler is implemented. Let me know if you are interrested in implementing that :)).
The IPTables interfaces tries to represent a 1-1 look at the iptables rule set your configuration will create. Therefore it is ment to be used by experienced system administrators in order to setup very fine graduaded rulesets. Becaus of the tight relation this GUI has to the netfilter/iptables framework it can only be used on GNU/Linux workstations as the document can not be compiled into any other rule description language.
