I have an old Dell Dimension with two ethernet cards, and I need to turn it into a firewall. I've tried FireStarter and IPCop, but I don't think I'm setting them up right.
Here's the setup that I'm trying to accomplish: I need to have one ethernet card plugged directly into the modem, and the other ethernet card plugged into a 16-port switch/hub.
Part of the problem is that I've never done this before and despite hours of Googling, I'm still not sure where to start.
I don't need anything fancy or endlessly configurable - I just need some basic protection that I can tweak out later. The bottom line is that it's 10:45p, everyone else left the office at 5p, and I'm still trying to get this taken care of.
Thanks in advance for any help.
