    That can all be done with openbsd as well but its more complicated I have 4 nics. One in and one out which are both transparent and have no IP's on the network at all. One for ssh managment which I keep unplugged unless I need it and one for wifi on a different subnet just like barry with 0 access to the rest of the network unless I unblock it in the pf.conf

    Maybe it was weenie network? I know you called it a name anyway.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    snort needs to be registered in smoothwall 3
    registration makes spam
    if a solution to a problem is stupid and works, it is not stupid.

    Jesus H. Tapdancing Christ, if you're going to make a comment about something, you ought to know what the hell you're talking about. That's the second stupid comment in this thread.

    It isn't spam, it's updates on the Snort signatures. And that is a good thing.

    I've read about honey pots but haven't found any good tutorials on that.



    Sorry for the stupid questions, just curious about the what if's.
    If you're that paranoid,

    1. Look into a WIDS
    2. Use a super long WPA password
    3. or just do away with Wifi altogether

    Thanks for all the responses. Smoothwall seems like the best option. Only problem is it won't work how I wished it would in vmware. A physical machine will cause my power bill to go up, which I am trying to avoid by using virtual machines in the first place.

    I know it is best to use a long randomized wpa 2 password.

    I'm still studying about this stuff, but I think my DD-WRT firmware allows me to separate my wlan from the lan. I need to research that.

    Wireless is nice to have, so I want to keep it if all possible.

    It does.

    You can also enable WPA and Radius authentication. Which should be more than enough for a home network.
    I'm a compulsive post editor, you might wanna wait until my post has been online for 5-10 mins before quoting it as it will likely change.

    I know I seem harsh in some of my replies. SORRY! But if you're doing something illegal or posting something that seems to be obvious BS I'm going to call you on it.

    I could never get my phone to do the radius authentication stuff.... You're also going to need a box playing radius server.
