welll right now ... internet side is on the 100baseT side.. (to the fiber
box on the side of the house..

and 2 internal networks ... one has access to the net and the other doesnt
.. the one that doesnt has the internal web pages for the family and some
other stuff.. including databases etc with lots of goodies..

i have the DHCP server and DNS (bind) on a SS5/110

the LX only routes ... i have to flush IPF almost daily anymore..
it wasnt bad when i had a T1 connection , the LX did wonderful ...

problem already solved .... moving to Cisco stuff... end of problem. (hate
to see
the LX retired but its overdue... ill miss ipf and have to get use to the
Cisco syslog stuff)
