after absorbing the information in "practical unix security" and
this list, i'll be creating a firewall of my own (yes, bryan, it
appears we're finally going to get an internet connection).
chances are we'll use a cisco router as the choke and an hp 710 as
the gate. however, i'd be interested to hear what people like as
chokes and gates--and--what they don't like.
just occurred to me that i might not be able to get two network
interfaces in the hp 710. if this is the case, what is the danger
in setting up the router so that it only passes traffic from both
the external and internal networks only to the gate? is it better
to get a gate that has two network interfaces?
