I didn't mean to, sorry.

If I get it, you're right this time. Me too, I think m0n0wall is meant to be
a firewall.

I might have misinterpreted again, but I did understand that you thought
running DHCP on the firewall was a bad idea. I was just indicating the fact
that all is a balance between ease of use and security. Even running samba
on a firewall isn't sacrificing *all* for functionality, just a lot. Too
much, if you ask me, but that's a personal choice.

Again, I was just illustrating the fact that there are choices to be made,
not attacking you in some way. If running DHCP on a firewall is too much of
a security risk for some people, they should not download m0n0wall. If they
want some free MS-SBS, they should not download it too. I did use ;-) to
indicate the fact I was not that serious though.
