hi All,

i was thinking of making a router out of a connex and net-duo-mmc. has
anyone tried this before? i tried searching the forums and came across the
following questions, but didn't see much else.

http://www.nabble.com/planning-to-build-a-gumstix-based-router-td12948803.html#a12948803

any input would be most appreciated. i don't as yet own the hardware listed
above (or in the link), but was thinking of buying a connex and net-duo
before they go out of stock (i saw that they're being phased out).

just in case you're interested, i was thinking of doing something along the
lines of routing traffic from one LAN interface to the other or to another
device on USB net depending on port numbers or type of data packet. don't
know if this is even feasible, so would appreciate any input on this too!

as always, thanks in advance!

Hi,

Yes, you can do it the way you're expecting to. I've run a router on the netduo for quite a few months and was very happy with the results.

You need to get your hands on the hardware and once you have all relevant network interfaces up and running ok, you just create a few rules with iptables (there are quite a few tutorials on the internet) and the little thing will just fly :-)

Good luck!
