Re: "transparent" firewall possible?

Well I have a /29 subnet - what I mean is that BT offer no way to have say a
DMZ next to the router with a firewall (with a /30) and the other /30 routed
via the firewall device. That where the layer 2 firewall comes in handy.

right now, it seems you are a SNAT candidate. they couldn't figure
that out...
