Right now, m0n0wall only handles IP routing, firewalling, and closely
related needs. IPX/SPX is a totally different protocol than IP and there are
no plans to support it, as far as I know. I am not knowledgeable enough
about the networking capabilities of FreeBSD to say if FreeBSD can even
*USE* IPX/SPX though...all I can say for sure is that m0n0wall doesn't
support IPX/SPX right now.

Admittedly, this is something I was hoping to do as well. Even though I 
use nothing but licensed copies of Starcraft, I enjoyed the bnetd 
project tremendously because most of the people on battle.net are 
childish idiots. It's nice to have a private server game, or failing 
that, a private VPN game.

What about using the older TCP/IP setting in Starcraft, or even IPX/SPX? 
Will m0n0 support any of those? Forgive the n00b questions, I am not a 
professional networker by any means. =D
