I wouldn't put anything on it that isn't directly related to its mission. At most, I'd suggest putting net-snmp on it, denying access from the untrusted side(s), and polling the box with mrtg/cacti/nagios from another machine. Better, I think would be to put ntop on another machine and mirror the port to which the firewall is attached. _______________________________________________ email@example.com mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
