I've had 2.1.103 up since early Friday and it's rock solid, 2.2 can't be very
Some good things have gone into 2.1.x, the 64 Meg "limit" has disappeared, just
plug the memory in and switch on.
One thing that caught me on the hop was "ipchains", profuse documentation,
except none of the examples fitted a simple masquerading example, when all else
had failed, there was only "forward" to work on and it did the trick. I did it
on the fly in 2.1.102, did ipchains-save, but when I rebooted on 2.1.103,
"ipchains-restore" just sat there complaining and the login prompt never
appeared, so I booted up off tomsrbt, edited my script to remove it and replaced
it with a ipchains command.
