im new to m0n0wall and im very impressed.
the first router dist used was clarkconnect, and i got fed up with RPMS so i
moved to my custom gentoo router. i decided i wanted a new dedicated router
and wated bsd* running on.
went to google bsd router [enter] and m0n0wall came up.
havnt looked back
*a page which displays total weekly, monthly bandwidth usage - as many ppl
have capped internet.
*a page which displays bandwidth used by each each mac assigned dhcp address
or dns forwarded name
*this is the scenario:
i have a webserver located behind m0n0wall on http://192.168.1.5: 8002
i have forwarded traffic from WAN:8002 to 192.168.1.5:8002
forwarding works ok :) form the outside
in the lan, when i point my browser to http://sivad77.ath.cs:8002 <- it does
i have to goto http://192.168.1.5:8002 <- this is pretty annoying
it would be nice to use my dynamic name :) - maybe i didnt set something up
*the ability to change the port of which webgui operates on
*seeing i have a 3gb cap, i usually run out of bandwidth 2 weeks into each
month, i my net get capped to 3.6kbs - therefore i turn pics off in my
browsing to speed up news reading etc.
the add, edit etc pics dont have alt="edit" etc, which is a pain in the ass
- u can still use it as blank squares come up, and u can tell what does what
through the address
*i changed the mac address on the wan card (very nice feature), and the
internet stopped working, as when you setup the router u select which card
does what via the mac address in the console.......changing the mac address
didnt update this automatically, and i spent 30mins wondering why my net
went down :(
great work! best router OS i have used. shits on clarkconnect, but
clarkconnect has a different target audience.
ps - exams are nearly over, as of tomorrow, and i will be willing to help
with the project. i dont have many skills, but im eager to learn :)
