This is my second question about Morning Star routers on this list (BTW,
thanks to the people who responded the first time)....
Our MS router is situated between an application gateway (AG) on our
internal network and a dial-up PPP connection to our Internet provider.
First, as I'm using one (static dial-up) route to our service provider and
one route to the AG I suppose I can disable dynamic routing on the MS router
by deleting 'gated' and enable static routing with the line 'route add
default <<<MS-interface address>>' in RC.BOOT. Am I right????
Second, I don't want any service running on my router, so I want to delete
the files 'services'. That's OK??? Or should there be one entry for 'syslog'
(514/udp)? Why should there be a nfsd on the router???? Is it safe to delete
all protocol entries in the file 'protocol' but IP and TCP (I don't want any
Third, what's the use of the file smp.parties (SNMP???) and ACL.parties?????
Can I delete the files 'vectors', 'tzposixrules', 'view.parties'???
Fourth, in the rc.boot file there's a line which reads 'getty tty2 9600
nowait respawn'. Does this mean that more than one person is allowed login
in simultaneously??? Should 'nowait' be replaced with 'wait'???
The reason for asking these questions is that after bankrupcy of our
firewall-supplier we haven't goy any documentation at all and we are
evaluating our current firewall. The setup should be as minimum as possible.
Again, my thanks in advance for any response,
