*       The proper way to protect against ARP poisoning is with controls on
your switches preventing it from occurring. 

*       Static ARP is impractical and ineffective in this circumstance (and
most others for that matter).



Chris, I respect and agree with what you said but,

What I don't understand is. where m0n0wall keep the files I upload?



*       If someone wants to ARP poison that network, this won't stop anyone
from poisoning the client PCs, 

*       and you aren't going to be able to maintain static ARP on every PC.
Hence you can't truly deploy static ARP


I am using software to provide static arp entry on the client PCs 

Not all of them but most. Now I need to protect the m0n0wall it self

From being spoofed.

And so there are worms and viruses that use arp.

Yes It is really a major headache to maintain.


I did not try building my own image, as m0n0wall almost fit.

But I wish to have this feature in next m0n0wall beta image.


Thanks allot
