Hello Lee:
A friend of mine also uses Monowall on a PC and it works great for him.  He
uses his in a WISP situation.  I will be using mine in a WISP situation real
soon.  I even have my door hangers made up and will be handing them out very
Although I still feel a little unsure of myself concerning Monowall, from
what I see, I love Monowall.  The only difficult part was me trying to learn
the traffic shaper.  Information was hard to come by.  But I think I have
some intricate Rules.like I'm using CIDR numbers to pre-select several up
and down speed pipes (virtual), and then I'm trying to use queues applied to
those virtual pipes.  To make it worse, I'm not a networking guru - lol.
I was responding to another thread to let them know mine worked fine, but I
forgot to put in the "Re" in order to get my comments under their thread.
But they will probably see this anyway.
I hope I'm responding properly here.  That is, I took your response from the
list, and pasted it in my Outlook and typed in the subject.  I hope that's
the right way.
Monowall is great.  I just need to learn more about how to use its vast
capabilities.  That would be real neat if there was a good book on Monowall
or if someone real knowledgeable in Monowall held classes.  I'd go to the
classes, even if it was in California (and I'm in PA).
Have a nice day,

While you hear about ALL of the lockup problems here, you do not hear from 
the thousands that run just fine.  I have over 30, and I have not seen the 
problem either.  It is a real problem, but it seems to be quite rare.
