Hey folks,

have a question for you all.

I have now a Cisco 677 ADSL router, however i want to use my DebianBox
to connect and throw away the 677. I know i should prolly use an ATM
netcard on the wan-side and that would be possible, what i would like to
know from you guys is, Would it be possible? And How do i set it up? :)

sure it will, add 2 NIC's to it - connect one to the internet, the other to your LAN.

then use this script (or something similar) to setup the iptables rules

http://majorwoo.dynup.net:1024/pub/rc.firewall

if you are using ipchains it would need to be different, but if yoou still have chains you wan tto go to iptables anyway - its much better (stateful packet inspection is much more secure)

check out the EXTIF, INTIF, INTIP, INTNET variable stowards trhe top of the script - they will need to be set to your system (pretty self explanitory, comments are very good)

Sure, but you need a linux driver for the wan card. For example
