I recently decided to switch from an IPtables firewall
to m0n0wall. I downloaded the current version -
pb26r614 and installed it on a Compaq 1850R with 256
meg of RAM and 2 network cards in addition to the
built in interface. (3 interfaces total)
I tested the new installation for about a week without
it being connected to the Internet. All testing
worked out fine, and m0n0wall ran like a charm. It
stayed up the whole week, with no problems.
So, yesterday, I decided to put it into production.
Within about 3 hours, it rebooted itself (about 12:30
pm yesterday). Then, this morning at about 8:30, it
rebooted itself again. Does anyone know what might be
causing this? It stayed up just fine in the testing
phase, which was, of course, a very light load.
However, even now, in production the load is pretty
I should add that this is a relatively new machine for
me. However, before I installed m0nowall, it had
stayed up just fine for weeks running linux, but not
acting as a firewall.
Do I have some kind of NIC problem? If I start to
replace my ethernet cards, is there any way to reload
the old ruleset, or do I have to manually enter them
