I'm assuming you're still running ipchains, using PMFirewall.
I've got a cable connection here, and while the signal comes
to the cable modem, it hits the 1st nic in the Linux box. The
box is configured to be a server/switch/gateway/router.
The LAN is on eth1 (192.168.xx.xx), the world is on eth0.
out of eth1 the server goes to an 8port 10/100 switch.
On the lan is another linux box, 2 windows machines and a
spot for a laptop. I've got another machine, that's a spare,
with Linux on it. I can't see having 4 systems in a house
that only has 3 people in it :-) At my desk, is the Windows
machine, the server and the laptop.
