linux firewall

I'm trying to turn an old Pentium into a firewall using Linux. I'm having some problems with the configuration. With only one NIC I can get the internet connection working, but when the other NIC is installed, the internet connection fails. Are there any good online resources for this type of problem or can anyone help with the configuration?

  1. you might try the linux section. i dont know anything about linux.

    my computer is so fast, it completes an endless loop in less than 4 seconds!
  2. You dont say what distro, I ran red hat for a while as a firewall/router, Im now running <A HREF="http://www.freesco.org" target="_new">freesco</A> runs from a floppy, theres also <A HREF="http://www.bbiagent.net" target="_new">bbi agent</A> I tried bbi but althought the interface was pretty, it didnt seem as vconfigurable as freesco.
    This has been running 24/7 for more months than I can remember, only gets rebooted if my isp messes up.
