first of all many thanks to the m0n0 developers and contributors.
Half an our after i have installed m0n0, my zyxel zywall2 was disconnected.
With some basic knowledge the whole thing comes up very quick.
I have set up the latest beta on an 200MHz Pentium machine (IBM
Thikstation/Netvista) with two 3Com 3C905 NICs. I have applied some more
tagged VLANS on my LAN interface to get more interfaces (and networks) wich
are deciphered by my switch. All this works absolutely flawless. Even
bandwidth management is very easy to use. Just start the setup wizard to see
how it works. So far this is more than my zywall2 ever did for me.
But zywall2 has a very important feature: A generator for self signed X.509
certificates, that is missing on m0n0 completely. Since IPSec is in my
opinion the most compatible and flexible solution for building secured
networks there is a need for that application. As far as I can see, this
would be an PHP application for openssl. Since there is no other convenient
way to generate certificates than using the openssl command line tools i
thinks it is a must for m0n0.
Second thing I like to annotate is, that the function of the captive portal is
not really good documented :) maybe someone can give me a hint for a good
