    ClosedBSD

    Anyone here use it? I am trying it out and having one hell of a time getting up and working. First it was DNS, now it is getting ACK's from the outside. Grrr frustrating :{

    ClosedBSD is not something I would recommend. Very few hardware support, not too stable, etc.

    Re: ClosedBSD

    Hmm, so a full blown BSD install would be better, eh?

    I got iso's of FreeBSD in my *nix cd binder. I do recall that was reccomended a few times around here last time I asked. I just want a simple, easily backed up and restored NAT gateway.

    Any better reccomendations?

    Yup: http://www.linuxjunior.org/cgi-bin/p...play&id=42

    It also explains how to make firewall rules but you dont want/need any, it will just be easier (but less secure).

    I'm here if you got any questions.

    I actually will. Its the firewall that is easy by my book :) Doing a 2 DSL to a LAN gateway is something new to me and getting the logic down is my only real hurdle. I just want to find something that will be easy for my NT admin boss to figure out. Not to mention, if it is something uber-stable and reliable -- I am all for it!!! I can grab the OpenBSD ISO's and burn them. Not a biggie. Unless you think FreeBSD is good enough? (A mere savings of what $2.00 hehe)

    You can't download OpenBSD's ISO. If you have limited bandwidth, order the CD. Else, just do a FTP install, it's much more convienant (considering that for a gateway you need to download 30 megs...)

    Re: ClosedBSD

    Really... Hmmm thats cool! I do plan on ordering some flavor of BSD box set soon. I plan on dropping like $300 on *nix in the next few months. About $60 for RH7.3/8.0, $60 for SuSe 8.3 (or whatever -- its been awhile since I used SuSe) and the $50 or whatever for the BSD box kit that I have seen around. Then its book madness. I found a guy who is selling to me for $25 bucks a book some Apache, DNS, Clustering and whatnot books -- so whatever I can muster up is essentially his. Used books, but in great shape. In a few months I will be a hermit living in my Unix cave :)
