This has basically been done, ish ...

Check out the efficient networks 5861 adsl / shdsl router ... these
basically run open bsd ..

There is a lot on info out there on the net, and they are excellent adsl
routers with the built in functionality of a firewall with full ipsec
capability ...

I would use them more but I just like mono too much :)

Eusty in the uk was usually a good place to start ..

Subject: [m0n0wall] Documentation Thank You (How to build m0n0wall from

Just wanted to say a big "Thank You" to whoever wrote and is maintaining

the docs for building m0n0wall from scratch.  And to whoever (I assume 
Manuel) split out and posted all the patches.

Because of this, I have resurrected my project to get 3 things in
1. Ipsec compression.
2. Filtering on ipsec links.
3. Better queuing (really just borrowing with ALTQ).

The move to Freebsd 5 would have helped these, but I don't know if that 
will be possible for all us wrap/small system users.

So taking that into account, I've decided to try and port m0n0wall to 

I currently have combined some openbsd scripts from the net to build an 
embedded system.  flashboot is used to build a /bsd kernel with embedded

root filesystem, and flashdist is used to install that image to a 
bootable compact flash image.

I have successfully booted from cf using the stock flashboot build -- 
generic-pc size is under 6M, but that includes tons of things like ftp, 
ssh, etc.  There is plenty of room to take things out and put m0n0wall

1. Cleanup/combine scripts into easy build system (and release this if 
anyone is interested).
2. Use the docs to make script that builds all m0n0wall needed binaries 
(php, mini_httpd, etc).
3. Remove binaries that aren't needed.
4. Hack m0n0wall scripts for openbsd.  Biggest thing will be firewall 
ipf->pf and ipsec daemon conf files.

If anyone is interested, drop me a line off list.  If there is any 
interest, I'll setup a svn repo for all this.
