Surfing and posting over a firewall/router
i486DX2-66 16 meg RAM
two old 10 mbs 3com ISA nics
and a floppydrive
using floppyfw "current image" from http://www.zelow.no/floppyfw/index.html
working fine so far for e-mail, http and ftp.
Probably will be a bit harder if I try gaming or ICQ
cause then i have to change firewall.ini
and I know way to little Linux yet.

How hard was it to get your linux firewall setup?

Easy but I made it harder SPAM;D
by firtst installing win 95 and 2 3com nics
got it all verking and set the adress on nic with soft
ware toke a note of eth addresses on nics
linux usually makes nic with lowest address eth0
other wise SPAMone has to ping to find eth1 which is
the only pingable after floppyfw have started.
eth0 goes to adsl modem
I did the w95 bit if the floppyfw should fail
so I could use analogX proxy instead if needed
(but that is actually bitchier to set up cause of all
email aliases and stuff)
I just hooked it up
configured tcp ip
the msie settings like before as well as e-mail
ftp as http with ftp support.
Cheap can handle at least a hundered clients .

Have tried a few different floppyfw packages
liked the floppyfw-jt very much has an internal DHCP
so one doesn't have to enter IPs
But now I'm running a version which logs in (at telia sweden) and has a DHCP server, very nice but doesn't have
FPU support as the floppyfw-jt has.
