[lug] DSL Question

I have ppp, but prefer bridged.  With bridged, I set up one of my
own boxes as the first thing on the network, thus my own
firewall, etc.  I'm having to use this idsl router as my firewall.
It works but took a while to get configured.


Thus spake David Morris (boru at frii.com):
