I am new to the Unix/Linux/OBSD world. I have installed and been playing around with OBSD and really like it so far. But here is what I want to do and need help, a lot of help with. I want to break it down into stages so you can see where I am going, but I want to concentrate on the first stage before I move on.
a) Configure OBSD to dial into my ISP
b) Login automatically
c) Reconnect when disconnected.
a) I have a static IP from my ISP. I want to use there DNS, but have my OBSD box act as a router for my internal network. I have also registered a domain name and have it registered to my static IP with my ISP.
b) Have it do all my resolving for my internal network.
a) Install, configure a firewall (IPFiler maybe?)
b) Configure it so it only accepts connections from certain IPs.
a) Install a caching server (only have a 56k connection) like squid, so all my machine can use common sites.
If you feel you can help me and keep it in relatively simple terms I'd really appreciate it. At the moment I am most interested in stage one. Keep in mind that I have never done anything like this before?
Thanks in advance for any and all help.
