RE: IPFilter

I thought for a while if I should answer this question, because it's clearly listed in the FAQ as a question that you should never ask here, but I think that old Macs is something of a novelty here, so here we go..

What, excactly, is an old Mac? I think my mom's old Mac Classic from
sth like over ten years ago is pretty secure, because it hasn't
been networked for approx five years. ;-) (The Mac, my mom is very
much alive and socializing.)

If you plan to run an old Mac as your firewall, I think that
OpenBSD is a more secure solution, but someone else might have
something different to say on this.

we have a couple of PM 7200/90 here , they are not supported by neither *BSD, only SuSE and YellowDog (IIRC) support those. I tried to talk the boss into donating one to a BSD camp, but she has plans for them.
