I have made a number of changes that all affect P2P traffic - using my 
NetEnforcer I have forced all P2P traffic (that can be classified) into a 
single virtual channel that I can work with.  I have reduced the max number 
of live connection to 80 (only for P2P) and reduced the max connections 
initiated per second to 15.  I have also limited the P2P traffic to 200 kbps 
up and 200 down.  I still have the nightly reboots, and this morning at 6:15 
this unit froze up.  I have absolutely no hair left after pulling it all 
out.  I have also just submitted a purchase order this afternoon for a Cisco 
router.  m0n0wall has beaten me.  I give up...    :-(   I am almost 
convinced that P2P traffic has nothing to do with the freezes, but where do 
I go from here?.....
