I plan to have a FreeBSD (4.9 stable) system serving as a router between my provider and a set of my home computers connected via a home network.
My provider does not really like this, but I don't care so much, as long as s/he cannot detect (too easily) my home network.
My plan is to use the following setup in my rc.conf: gateway_enable="YES" natd_enable="YES" natd_interface="rl0" firewall_enable="YES" firewall_type="open"
(with, of course, the proper options compiled into the kernel).
Is it correct, that the combination of firewall and natd divert all requests and thus hide the home network for my provider? Are requests from all other networked home PC's done on behalf of the router, so that my provider will only see requests from my router?
Or do I need some better (firewall?) configuration for this?
Thanks, Rob. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
