Your message is a little confusing... Is there a router involved
that takes the T1, and you are simply attaching to the LAN port of that T1?
If so, it should simply be a crossover connection..
Or are you trying to attach the T1 directly to Monowall? If that is the
case, you must have a special card and a special build of Monowall
software.. (Manuel was selling two of the cards along with the special build
a week or two ago)..
As for the bad internal press on the "M0n0wall/real firewall" issue, I'd
have to say that Monowall is more of a real firewall than a lot of products
on the market... I moved from a Watchguard SOHO6 to a Monowall, really
because the SOHO6 wasn't a "real firewall" in one important way... It
allowed you to have a LAN and a DMZ behind it, but there was no way to
create rules on what could go between those two networks... It was either
100% open, or 100% closed off. When questioned about it, Watchguard support
said that to get that level of control I would have to buy a Firebox X.
I sold my SOHO6 on Ebay and got about half of what I needed to get a new
With Monowall, you have full control over exactly what can go between any of
your interfaces... That's a real firewall in my book.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Trouble Connecting to XO T1
I am trying to replace a generic netgear router with a m0n0wall [Net4501]. I
have install this same setup in several other locations with no issues. Only
thing that is different is the at this is a T1 from XO and not a DSL or
connection. I can't seem to get the network interface on the M0n0wall to
up. I also tried to connect using a crossover with no success. I am baffled
to what the issue could be. This connection works if I use the Netgear
I can connect the M0nowall to the internal(lan side of the router) with no
issues. It works fine. I know it is a physical connection issue because when
connected to the lan or a cable modem it works like expected.
Has anyone seen this before? Can you give me some direction. I looked on the
list archive and found no direct references.
I really need a little advice here I'm starting to get some bad internal
on the M0n0wall/real firewall issue.
