Hello m0n0wall users,
Version 1.0 includes IPIP (protocol 41) tunnel redirection in Advanced
AFAIK this makes m0n0wall the only free available out-of-the-box router
solution with IPIP-tunnel support.
Very big thanks to Manuel & the supporters who made this possible - I
searched a _very_ long time to find a small CF-bootable solution for my
network with this feature!
Fli4L (which I used before), Smoothballs, IPCop, and most other
Linux-based routing solutions are IPv4 only and won't support NAT on
protocol 41 - AFAIR only GRE/proto 47 masquerading modules are available)
Ok, now here's my big question:
Are there plans to integrate native IPv6 support on the m0n0wall itself?
LAN/WAN IPv6 support, Router Advertisement Daemon, eventually tunnel
broker/helper software would be a "nice to have" for most geeks around.
M0n0wall (as based on FreeBSD) has excellent networking capabilities -
why not use more of them?
As a matter of concept another question comes to me:
In what way could I customize my m0n0wall? I guess some ppl would die
for ISDN support where others would like to have another feature in m0n0.
Has there been a discussion about installable feature packets yet?
I installed my first m0n0wall about 20 hours ago (look at time of this
posting :) and I'm still all for it.
Please excuse my enthusiasm / maybe bad English :)
