Come to think of it, after see Fajar's comment, he may be right. Since your
DSL router is on your RED interface, you _might_ be OK. I just wouldn't
Thanks for all the responses, some interesting advice, I have the system on
test right now, the dsl router connects to the isp, has four eth ports and
wireless. All I'm using is one eth port which goes to the red eth
interface of the ipcop box. The router dhcp gives an ip address to the
ipcop box, I have this address set manually in ipcop, and the ipcop dhcp
gives an address to the green Ethernet card and to devices connected to the
green intface. There is, at present, only one pc on the green, I guess I
will have to purchase a switch to connect further hosts and then the setup
may work ok, I was planning on getting an old used switch on ebay.
I don't think I can use the other eth ports on the router for anything, they
would not be protected by ipcop obviously, but also when I tested that,
there were problems and I lost connectivity, I'm not sure why, but possibly
some kind of conflict with the two dhcps ? I'm not using any wireless here
at the moment, but I guess when I do I'll have to put a wireless card in the
ipcop box, not try and use the built-in one on the router if I want to take
advantage of the security of ipcop, and from what I've seen I'd like to use
ipcop if I can.
The router has its own firewall btw, and for p2p I have had to manually set
port forwarding to the red eth of the ipcop box, seems to work though, the
firewall log is throwing up a lot of messages about CHAIN "New not Syn?"
Is that something to do with the "half-open sockets" I've read about, is it
something I could fix?
The only other problem in the firewall logs are msgs about broadcasts from
the Gateway to 18.104.22.168 CHAIN "Input" Protocol "2" src and dest ports "2"
These include a MAC address, I wondered if they were ARP messages? Don't
know why they would be a prob for the firewall though.

Ok, I will have a look at that , I've downloaded Putty, I'll get Winscp and
check that out, then see how I get on with Linux, I remember I ran my
mailing list remotely on a Unix box, back in the days, and I had some
frustrating times with pine and with an unforgiving command structure which
made Dos4 look user friendly! A Gui should help!
