I'm not sure who wrote it, but in a previous message in this thread someone 
suggested making it an option with a 'check box' to enable and disable it... 
perhaps they were right. I still stand on the fence in regards to this, I 
can see both the advantages as well as the disadvantages to having a ssh 
console to aceess monowall. I've grown used to having console access to 
routers, Cisco, Watchguard and Raptors all have it and it does give you 
quite a bit of control and adds to the functionality... so long as the ssh 
port is blocked from the WAN interface there should be no real security 
issue, but as with all network security "Less is more".
MonoWall is open source and anyone could recompile it with SSH support, but 
as for MonoWall itself ultimatley the decision is up to Manuel.

&gt; &gt; Perhaps I'm missing something -- if people are psyched for ssh 
&gt; &gt; why not run m0n0bsd?
&gt; &gt; Seems like it'd be easy to add ipf(ilter) or the like, and end up 
&gt; &gt; a text-configurable firewall you can ssh to...
&gt; &gt;
&gt;And we could run Linux..... But we don't !
&gt;We like m0n0wall, why should we change to another platform if we like 
&gt;m0n0wall package. ?
