Also go over the kernel and disable anything you don't need. I have never needed to squeeze every cycle of performance out of a machine, but it should help to reduce un necessary programs from been run. You may also try to find from others which firewall is more efficient if ipfw or ipf. Also find from others who have had firewalls on busy networks how rules order may possible have an impact in performance. Best of luck in this project.. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
