Apropos 486 and firewall: what requirements are there for a firewall /
masq. gateway to serve a LAN of approx. 20 - 50 clients?
I mean, I have seen a 486 25sx w/z a cable modem serve up to 5 clients
completely fine. It has IIRC 48 mbs of ram and was using about 100
ipchains rules. Are there any tests / comparisons on this subject?
