Although I have been following m0n0wall for quite a while, and had a
Soekris box sitting on my computer stand for nearly a year, I only recently
started setting up my home network to use m0n0wall.
In an effort to better understand what I was doing, and to contribute back
to the project, I spent some time writing a bit of documentation for
m0n0wall, a "Getting Started" guide intended for first-time users, who
would likely be using it just for basic DHCP and NAT (which is all I have
set up on my network so far):
Feedback and corrections very welcome.
If the reception is positive, I'd like to continue to develop docs for the
project, with the intention of working on an advanced NAT section, a DMZ
section, and a firewall section (among other things). Of course, for those
more advanced topics, I'll probably need to pester some of the experts on
the list. ;-)
My intent is to offer these docs for integration into the official
documentation of the project, but at least initially, I'm working on these
I hope this is useful!
