In the UK we are not all of this intellect. I'm certain this guy is joking. At least I hope so. ;) I ran a whois on his email, and he appears to be located in Essex. Though the name seems Spanish, so perhaps he's still upset over Cadiz? ;) -Bryan

Re: Would OpenBSD and Squid be considered a Proxy Firewall?

having also not read the book, my guess would be that a transparent proxy + firewall would increase security because people don't have the the option to run SSH tunnels via the HTTP port. A good example would be years ago I ran a sock4 proxy on port 80 on my home firewall to allow me to download

Optimised out of the box sounds good to me - not having to do anything is the way I like to work ;-) You do realise that this means that the installation time of the base system is now going to be down to about 15 minutes (from over a day) - what am I going to do with all that spare time?

Sorry for the top-post but there jsut wasn't anywhere appropriate for a snip type of thing. If the laptop only needs www access no appletalk is needed. Appletalk is purely a file serving mechanism, like samba or nfs. If you need appletalk it's pretty easy to set up on OpenBSD. --Bryan On
