First and foremost hi to every one. I'm a newbie to the list and
m0n0wall. I've been reading quite a lot about it and have been going
through the list as well.
I haven't tried m0n0wall yet but will do soon. I'll probably start
off using an old PC and either a hard-drive or the CD-ROM solution. But
the embedded PCs really interest me.
In the meantime, I've been reading about the latter ones and don't
fully understand the need or use of a 3rd Ethernet port (as in Soekris'
net4501-30 model). 2 ports make sense to me: WAN + LAN. I believe the
3rd port is commonly used for DMZ, correct?
If this is the case it kind of confuses me because I'm used to
having DMZs set-up virtually.
Can anyone enlighten me, please?
Terribly sorry if this question sounds awkward or even dumb but
there's a long way to go for me in the firewall/embedded PC world.
Thank you for your time and understanding.
