Hello everyone,


I have been reading you super article on Firewalls. I liked it very much. However, as newbie as I am in the sys admin arena (not in the engineering arena) I have a scenario where I would to install a firewall. Could you please let me know if it's feasible? Here we go:


I have a bunch of computers at the company which are linked together to the Internet via a router. So far, everything works fine because Mac OS 9 cannot be hacked as easily as other systems. In a couple of weeks, we're moving to Mac OS X, and suddenly the game changes.


I would like to create a firewall to stop potential intruders, and I thought that perhaps BrickHouse could help me here. We don't have many consultants that know what OS X in Barcelona, Spain, so I have to look for help elsewhere.


Could you please let me know what can I do to or how should I put BrickHouse to work in such scenario? I've heard that some people in other OS's use a PC with two NICs and a virtual IP table with a list of allowed IP that have granted access to the protected network. Can BrickHouse simplify this situation? Do you have any suggestions?


Thank you very much. Your help is *amazingly* appreciated.


Regards.
