Contact NexCom for pricing. These are much more high end than the WRAP and Soekris platforms, and hence are much more costly. There are a number of different configurations available, with prices starting over 0 USD for the most basic model. NexCom’s Nexgate line of appliances all support m0n0wall.
They must be taken from successive /30 subnets in order to be compatible with Windows clients and the TAP-Windows driver. Specifically, the last octet in the IP address of each endpoint pair must be taken from this set:. Each pair of ifconfig-push addresses represent the virtual client and server IP endpoints.
M0n0wall’s file system design, in that it runs from RAM and does not maintain anything other than your configuration across reboots, is not condusive to applications of this nature. These packages all have heavy requirements like Perl and others. In order to keep m0n0wall light, these packages cannot be added directly to the system. Not directly on the firewall.
C, that is compiled and added into the m0n0wall image, and can be modified to increase the usability and security. Note on the very short public/private RSA keys: I know, those can be cracked easy and in no time, if one of the keys is known. The idea here was to make it a little bit harder than simply adding a shared password into the m0n0wall config file. Anyhow, all that encryption/decryption stuff is done in a newly added binary C program voucher. Unfortunately I’m no expert on encryption but I assume with such short encrypted vouchers, there is no security difference between the used RSA keys and a symmetric encryption.
For information on installing other guest operating systems, see the VMware Guest Operating System Installation Guide, available from the VMware Web site or from the Help menu. The steps are the same on a Linux host. The screen shots illustrate the process on a Windows host.
64 MB of RAM – 64 MB RAM is the official suggested minimum. This is because m0n0wall stores everything in RAM and uses no swap space – when it runs out of RAM, it has nothing to fall back on. The CD version of m0n0wall has been reported to work fine for some people with only 32 MB. When using the CompactFlash or hard drive versions of m0n0wall, expect upgrades to fail with less than 64 MB.
Occasionally other hardware like sound cards, and similar, can prevent some or all of your cards from being detected. Try removing any cards in the system that aren’t required, and disabling any unused hardware (USB, parallel port, serial ports, any onboard sound, etc. ) in the system BIOS.
In FreeBSD, if_bridge (4) is a kernel module which is automatically loaded by ifconfig (8) when creating a bridge interface. It is also possible to compile bridge.
There are no warranties of any kind though. M0n0wall is under the BSD license, which basically means that you can do whatever you want with it (including modifying and selling it) for free, as long as the original copyright notice and license appear somewhere in the documentation and/or the software itself.
DES is only slightly better than transmitting in clear text. Do NOT use DES for a VPN if you want it to be cryptographically secure. If the “VPN-3DES-AES” line above does not show “Enabled”, you need to install the PIX 3DES key. This is now available free from Cisco here for all PIX firewalls (click 3DES/AES Encryption License).
4 Virtual Hub Functions enables users making a VPN connection to a Virtual Hub to receive (intercept) all virtual Ethernet frames flowing within that Virtual Hub. Using a function like the one described in 3. A similar operation can be performed for locally bridged Virtual Network Adapters.
