    something called me here

    I was on here long ago as "thepike" , I had something like 350 posts but have been here and there for the last few months. For some reason I came back just after the site got back up so thought I'd register and see a few familiar faces are still here!

    well i installed red hat 9 and that was pretty good, but i needed to use the machine as a server, so used Windows 2000.

    i installed smoothwall on an old P2-350 dell and that's working perfectly as a router firewall for my network.

    so basically i think i'm sticking to windows for the time being, and smoothwall for a firewall / router

    do you use linux?

    yes, gentoo 1.4 and ipcop on my firewall.

    tried smoothwall but i much prefer ipcop. ipcop is branched from smoothwall btw but is less commerialised.
