For a while, I have been a happy user of IPcop firewall. Recently,
however, I decided to try a different approach and to run OpenBSD
as a firewall/router instead.
Now, with IPcop and its easy-to-use Web-interface, it was quite easy
to teach a computer novice how to bring the PPP connection up and
down and also to shut down the firewall machine altogether, when no
Internet connection was needed. How can I do the same thing with
OpenBSD? How can I make it really simple for such computer newbies
to log into the router machine, bring up the ppp connection, and
then to switch it off and shut down the machine?
Thank you very much in advance for any help.
