Hi there! You can set up natd+IPFW or use pf only. I think bridging is not necessary in your case. Proper filter rules will give your freebsd system good protection. Some information could be found in the Firewalls chapter of the Handbook: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/firewalls.html Great explanation of pf functionality here: http://www.openbsd.org/faq/pf/ I find pf approach much easier to set up and maintain. Google search will give you more ;) Good luck! -- Best regards, Jeff () X-mas ribbon campaign /\ _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
