File sharing on an OpenBSD bridging firewall
Being quite new at the concept of bridging, i've read a few papers wich explained that a bridging firewall would be something like a black box, completly invisible, transparent an therefore unreachable.
So here i'm thinking about using it on my home lan and suddenly i remember i wanted this machine(which will have OpenBSD) to act also as file/backup and database(mysql) server.
From what i read it is quite impossible to do that and turnning the computer into a bridging firewall, but i wanted to check this to people who know more about networking than me. And i would also like to know if without bridging, an OpenBSD firewall should still provide very strong protection.
