Why use two firewalls?  One with 3 interfaces would accomplish the
same thing, and be less complex and easier to deal with.

somebody else will have to answer your VoIP questions, there are a
bunch of people who work with VoIP regularly on this list.

you can use as many NIC's as you can fit in your system.

IDS should be a different system.

m0n0wall is fully stateful.

there isn't any SYN flood protection, but personally even on my PIX
firewalls, I use the protection in the OS of the system anyway and
disable it on the firewall.  The OS should have adequate protection
(if not, use a different one), and it knows much better than the
firewall can what it can handle.

what about them?  they'll happen.  things you open will show open,
things you don't won't.

Nothing higher than layer 3 and 4 in m0n0wall, so no.

I give up on answering any more questions in one email.  Use Google
site:m0n0.ch, you'll find your answers for the most part.
