RE: OpenBSD as a Firewall

Ok, thanks.

I'll have to see if they have this at Barnes & Noble or Borders.

In the meantime, I was trying to see if there was a web site
that had the information I was looking for.

Shortly after I posted to "misc", I found this one:


..and I'm reading through it now.

Let me know if you're aware of any others.

I just bought a GOOD, really good book about firewall with OpenBSD...

Subject: OpenBSD as a Firewall


I've just installed OpenBSD 2.8 on a Compaq
Deskpro via a boot floppy and ftp.

I need to configure this PC as a good firewall
because our office recently got a new internet
connection (T1) and it's currently being routed
through a WIN2K machine and this scares me.

I need to get this set up in a hurry.

This is my first experience with OpenBSD and
firewalling.  I do have over a years experience
using FreeBSD 3.4 & 4.2.

Can anyone point me to some good documentation
that goes into the specifics of configuring a firewall
with OpenBSD?  I've already read through the FAQ
and installation docs from the main web site.  I've
searched on the web and couldn't find anything
specific enough.

I need to add a second NIC card for the internet
and finish the rest of the configuration.

Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.
