    Netfilter/Ipchains are only as good as the person configuring them. Generally, for a home user, those canned scripts will be enough.
    Chris, I live right by the border to Canada and can go over there usually whenever I want. Do you know if anyone in Canada still sells older machine like that? I'd like to get a hold of one but here they don't come along very often because people throw them away thinking they no longer have a use.

    I agree that a p90 should have ample power to act as a gateway/firewall for a small network.
