ipmasq and pom/poff questions
My rebuild over the weekend went fine and I now have just 143 packages.
I'm sure if I was a bit braver with dselect I could reduce that further
but won't worry too much for now. I will start thinking about the rules
to give the FW and things to comment out of inetd(right name?) now.
When I installed the packages I answered yes to the question about
ipmasq recalculating the firewall rules when a connection is made or
dropped. Did I make the right decision and what does this mean?
I haven't made a connection with the rebuilt machine yet but it's last
incarnation would only allow me to make a connection with pon as root.
I thought this was a permissions problem but the latest issue of Linux
Format talks about a similar problem and suggests a module/package
(can't remember which) called ppp.0. I can't find this though! Any
ideas what the problem is? If you need details of permissions send a
list of files and I will email them later.
