Ehhrm I thought I mentioned the cascading setup earlier and also the results.
But my message might not have been clear. (grin)


As for the details, there's not much detail to mention. The only firewall that
occasionally freezes is still the one connected to the internet. Allthough all P2P
traffic gets blocked. So it might indeed be something like the NAT table running
out of space or something. (excuse the lack of technical terms here. ;-))

I'm going to post an image tomorrow, at work, which describes the layout of my
setup. A picture says more than... well you know. 

I really do not know what kind of details you want to know, I'll add the obvious
ones to my e-mail I'm going to send to the list tomorrow. Bare with me! I'm on
borrowed internet time here.
