My approach is more a blunt instrument with the firewall setup due
to inability to stop tinkering with hardware :)
I'm planning is to use three of our Wizards in the following way:
ADSL --- red - FloydWhiz - green --- switch --- MicroServerWhiz (fetchmail)
orange rest of internal LAN
So I've got hardware separation of various functions but in a group
of packages that are going to use around 30W (plus ADSL modem).
We've got an ether ADSL so I've looked at these dual PC-104 cards
I have a quote from Backplane for $183 + GST + $15 + GST freight.
but I was _sure_ I saw these (or a clone) on a web site to buy somewhere for
$40 US. I've since scratted through Mozilla histories etc and can't relocate
the page. Conclusion: hoax, withdrawn, too much red wine that night .. *sigh*
Since I'm about to buy this from an AU company and not slip one quietly
through the mail, if anyone else is interested in buying one of these
then a volume purchase may assist with the price and freight somewhat.
Let us know on the list if you're interested.
I know I could get a Billion and use the USB etc etc but I want the DMZ
port anyway so I figured go the whole hog..
