 Subject:  what to do when having rather many clients
 Date:  Mon, 14 Dec 2009 21:42:54 +0100
I have a machine in a rack where I can get free power and free 
bandwidth. In return it is available as a time server with good 
integrity (multiple GPS and HF receivers). It is also a member of the 
ntp pool project, and that is where my problems begin.

The monowall 1.3 in front of it acts as a router - it has routable 
addresses on both wan interface and the one my machine is on, and there 
is no NAT involved for the traffic between the wild internet and my machine.

The normal traffic is not a problem; When Turk Telecom's broken DNS 
points all of Turkey at me, however, the state count in monowall goes 
up. Fast. And it sometimes exhausts the 30k state table, at which point 
all traffic suffers.

What I need is primitive, stateless packet pushing between the two 
interfaces. Preferably without adding another box in front of it, since 
the monowall also acts as 6to4, pptp, and nat for the lan.

Is there a way to get stateless routing through editing the XML? Or do I 
need to do a custom image using my truly lacking pf skills?
