Hi, I'm an intermediate Linux user and here's my question:
I'm trying to get IPcop (afaik it's related to SmoothWall) to work with an internal DSL PCI modem, specifically a "SpeedStream 3021" by "Efficient Networks".
IPcop comes with built-in support for some internal DSL PCI modems, I don't know well enough how to tell from the command-line if it's recognizing the modem or not.
The reason I'm setting it up this way is because I have an external DSL modem but I want IPcop on a separate box for firewall and mostly for content filtering (DansGuardian). I was going to try to get the external router to forward requests to the IPcop for filtering but I don't think it's real possible, at least nobody seems to be doing it that way, so then I turned to installing an internal DSL modem into the IPcop and just using my other modem as a switch / wireless hub.
Here's my specs...
IPcop v. 1.4.13
SpeedStream 3021 modem
phone line DSL
Pentium MMX, 200MHz, 48MB RAM, 6GB Hard Drive, internal NIC and DSL modem
What I need is a driver for the IPcop to support the modem.
Whatever details you need that I left out, just ask!
Thanks in advance for your help!
