If you're really in a learning mood...hit up some friends for an old PII or junker lying around, throw 2 NICs in it and viola.. a router :) Probably a little harder to config then a Linksys you would find at BestBuy..but infinitely better :) Throw some big HD's in there and you have yourself a nice file server / backup server You'll realy be able to tweak it and learn much more about security, etc... plus nmapping your own boxes is always fun and won't get you in trouble :) My .02 Henrik -- Henrik Hudson [EMAIL PROTECTED] "`If there's anything more important than my ego around, I want it caught and shot now.'" --Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
