I know that m0n0wall does not support bridging multiple interfaces,
Can FreeBSD bridge multiple interfaces. I currently have a Pebble
Linux box that I would like to switch over to m0n0wall because I have
problems learning IPTables. I would also like to setup the captured
portal for user logins (NoCat no works due to the recursive login bug).
Currently I have a few people steeling internet from me, and I have a
few customers with email viruses and spam viruses. It would be easy
with m0n0wall to setup the firewall to stop that mess.
I have my Pebble setup with three wireless cards and two ethernet
ports. I have wlan0 setup as a AP and wlan1, wlan2 setup as back hauls
to other radios. I have eth0 bridged with wlan1 and wlan2.
pebble:~# brctl show
bridge name bridge id STP enabled interfaces
br0 8000.000024c17740 no eth0
I would like to do the same on m0n0wall. I have downloaded the SSH
patch to have SSH access to the m0n0wall server, but before I install
it, I would like to know if I can even do it. Last time I used
m0n0wall as an AP I had all kinds of problems with it locking up due to
bugs in the AP code. With SSH access I can setup scripts to reboot
when it detects any problems (or reset the interfaces). On Pebble I
have cron scripts to do this, but Pebble does not have all the firewall
stuff I would like with the easy interface to configure it.
Thanks for any help you can offer.
