If you have requirements to convert Linux Firewall rules over to the PIX, ASA, or IOS you probably want to look at the SourceForge (open source) project Firewall Builder. From the project summary "Object-oriented GUI and set of compilers for various firewall platforms. Currently implemented compilers for iptables, ipfilter, OpenBSD pf, ipfw, Cisco PIX firewall and routers access lists.". At the FW Builder do org site they added: "Firewall Builder uses object-oriented approach, it helps administrator maintain a database of network objects and allows policy editing using simple drag-and-drop operations.". Sounds pretty interesting. Version 3.0 beta was announced on July 15th.
