Jon, if you have any problems getting this hosted, I will host it for you.
I think this is a fantastic idea.
Would this appliance also act as the router, or would it be in addtion to
the router? If its in addition to the router, are you going to make a
modification to the main monowall core so you can point it to the cache

Subject: [m0n0wall] M0n0cache
At my work were in the progress of migrating our servers to new hardware.
One of these servers is a webcache running linux with squid in wccp v2 mode.
My current thought was, I have already 4years experience with developping
webcaches and now also with development for m0n0wall, I want to built some
appliance software much the same way m0n0wall works at this moment.
The only difference is that this will be a firmware explicitly for webcache
purposes. (system on flash running freebsd in memory fs, cache on local
I would use parts of the m0n0wall system (like firmware upgrades management
system etc) and if Manuel agrees with the whole thing will be hosted at
I searched on the net for a free distro for what I would like todo but found
none (if any knows one, let me know)
All thoughts are welcome
