I'll keep it in mind, but last I was aware Smoothwall doesn't run on Soekris
hardware.  :(  I have a net48xx and the silence and low heat output are 
important due to the location of the router.  If I could get Smoothwall to run
on it, then I'd go that route, but to my knowledge it's not a supported
configuration, even if I throw a huge CF card in it.

It's kind of sad when most $50 cheap-o home routers support UPnP, but it isn't
even offered as an *option* in m0n0, which is supposed to be a superior
solution.  I'm not suggesting that UPnP should be enabled by default or anything
insane like that, but I can't imagine that it is too hard to add...

Or maybe it is, I can say after checking out the current (sorry) state of UPnP
development for BSD.  :(

Guess I'll just have to live with it then.
