This is a 64 byte unit with suse 11.1 on it. I have a direct connect to the router. Unfortunately I lent out the disk to someone and they appear to have lost it. I am new at using linux, loved dox and hated windows but have had to use it until I was laid off.
I hope this give the info you are looking for will try to answer any other questions
Sorry, but being hit by port scans behind a DSL router,
specially when you have more than one machine attached,
doesn't make any sense at all. How would the router know
which machine to pass any inbound traffic on to? In a worst
case scenario you should be seeing traffic responses from
boxes where you initiated a connection by SOME means, and
the router passes the established connection on to your
machine that sent the SYN out. Or does your router actually
service a subnet of public IPs? That would be most unusual
for a DSL device.
