Watched both “The Sopranos” and “Six Feet Under” tonight thanks to Omar.. The tape reminded me how much I hate VHS, but fortunately I was able to watch the shows I missed last night, so I can’t complain too much. Both were good, but the “Six Feet Under” episode threw me for a loop… I mean, Brenda was acting so weird, Nate tripped out… weird… I have high hopes for this new season, and hopefully my cable installation will go well tomorrow so I can get back on track!

Picked up a Netgear 8 port switch this evening after work so we could get the file server up and running… The crappy Linksys FW/Router we are using is shitting the bed under load, so we are going to replace it with a the fileserver acting as a firewall… I haven’t set this stuff up under 2.4, and it kicked my ass last night.. Hopefully I can figure it out soon so I don’t have to run up/down 4 flights of stairs to reboot that crappy linksys anymore… :) If anyone knows any good resources for PPPoE/Masq/Firewalling under the 2.4 kernel (like an idiot’s guide) it would be appreciated..

  1. whats the prob! I just set it up today to fix my tivo.. our firewall is 2.2.x, but the serial cable isnt long enough to reach that machine, so i ran it through my personal box.. all you gotta do is enable the masq and netfilter crap and put 3 iptables rules in place.. i’ll post my fw rules or something when i get to work :)

    1. That would be great… Our biggest confusion was with getting the PPPoE client (something you prolly don’t have experience with) running… There are conflicting instructions out there, and it was just wicked confusing.

      Any insight you can provide to the fw stuff though would be muy appreciated.
