Hello! My current network setup consists of the ISP-provided DSL-modem plugged into the little switch together with the rest of the network. One of the machines on the runs natd and the others use it as the default router.
To get better protection I should be using a separate Ethernet card, into which only the modem will be plugged in. This is not as convenient from the cabling prospective, however. But what about an internal modem? Like http://store.yahoo.com/softbuyweb/inpcidslmod3.html It seems, en(4) should be able to use it and it should be able to connect to the ISP -- their modem is the Efficient Network's SpeedStream, which uses the same chip, most likely: Hardware Interface Name - SpeedStream 5660-R:ENI Hardware Interface Desc - Motorola 850 SAR Alcatel/RT Adapter Hardware Serial Number - [...] Hardware Revision Number - 00010001 Hardware Instance Number - 0 Driver Name - enatm0 (notice the ``en'' in the driver name) But -- will natd(8), the ipfw (4) and (8) work properly with en0? Any other potential problems? Thanks! -mi _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
