>From another list...
given that a BSD/386 or NetBSD system can be put together quite cheaply and
does a fine job at handling PPP and SLIP and multiple ethernets, this seems
like a fine alternative to dedicated routers like Cisco for T1/E1-speed
internet gateways. especially considering the power of GateD 3.5, and that
a 16MB cisco can't handle a "full internet route table" while a 16MB i486
machine can do it easily.
Comments from the gated crowd? The cisco crowd?
Go for it, have a party. I've got 2 BSD boxes myself, and I prefer them
over clunky cisco routers. Besides, have you ever been able to play
DOOM on an AGS?
