I have ubuntu running on my system using dsl to switch on ethernet
I am trying to find out what I need to do to make a hardware firewall. Is 450Mhz fast enough? I am trying to do it without spending to much. The comp I am using is 1.73G . Am I going to loose much speed in the transfer? Okay what the question is, how do I tell it (firewall) to drop unwanted packets ie; attack and forward the needed ones to my base system? Also is there anything special I need to know in the networking part of it? Is this what is called a Linux box? I want a front end hardware firewall networked to my base system. I'm fairly new to Linux, and I love it,
Wish I found it 20 yrs ago :) If someone could guide me to a page or better if you have done it great.
