I also slightly tweaked the script I have to include a whitelist file, as my wife keeps finding sites that simply won't work properly. It simply calls sed to remove lines from the unbound-adhosts.conf file Works great. I also set up pf to redirect all DNS queries to my local instance of unbound, so you can't easily bypass it (unless you use DNS over HTTPS). Jon Tabor tab...@obsolete.site
I'm running a small home NAS on OpenBSD, in a very similar configuration as your intended configuration, right down to the rsync backup scripts. It's worked very well so far, though I've only had it in place for a bit over a year. I chose OpenBSD over FreeBSD due to being far more comfortable with OpenBSD than FreeBSD, and my desire to run my favorite OS in a meaningful way. I say go for it, and (like all systems) make sure your backups are good (that means test them periodically). -- Jon Tabor tab...@obsolete.site "I desire peace. I also *require* freedom.

I have one of these, but I really only use it to connect the old VIC-20 to BBS systems. It works alright, but it's a bit funky in it's implementation. As others have said, it's completely plaintext; everything is sent in the clear. You'd be telnetting (not ssh) into it. How much do you trust your network? Aside from that, it should work, though I'm not sure how robust it'd be under long-term usage. You can find versions without the case on eBay for about $10USD, and at that price it's basically disposable. Pick one up and try it out.

I've seen/read about issues if TERM is set to something like xterm-256color. You might try changing it to screen-256color and see if the problem goes away. -- Jon Tabor | tab...@obsolete.site | http://obsolete.site "Once in a while you get shown the light In the strangest of places if you look at it right."

I experienced a bunch of packet loss on the internal port (dwge). I'm currently running both LAN and WAN interfaces via USB dongles (ure and axe devices that I had around). It does fine for my needs, but my pipe is only a 50Mbit up/down, which it handles fine. That said, I'm looking at alternatives, simply because I want the Banana Pro back as a board to tinker with, rather than having it full-time as necessary device. -- Jon Tabor tab...@obsolete.site http://obsolete.site 'There is a saying: There is no such thing as overkill.
