RE: Newbie, someone have how-to on from-scratch Debian firewall?



Brian,

I assume by "transparent" you mean without normal IP routing and without
consumption of (two) IP addresse(s).

This part I do know a little about.  Proxy-ARP has been used with success by
some users who run LRP ( http://www.linuxrouter.org/ ) ... and there is also
a driver that allows the firewall interfaces to work in bridging mode.... so
there are two solutions I know of.

As an aside, a lot of research I have done says that OpenBSD is a nearly
perfect platform for transparent... lots of people have been using it this
way for years when it seems that Linux is just getting into the game.
