Hi. just a general question.

We have a cable modem and a small home network with smoothwall, a switch and lotsa other clients.

We have a laptop with two pcmcia network cards and some funky cables.

Our question is: We will run linux on the laptop to act as a router and sniffer but what EXACT softwares should I run.

We need a BaseOS, router, packet sniffer and decent log analyzer for linux.

Setup: CABLEMODEM ----- LAPTOP ----- SMOOTHWALL ---- SWITCH ----- LOTSA-CLIENTS.

Surfboard SB5100 PII 64Mb 2Gb Crappy Box un-managed WinXP, Win2K, Linux.

Basically we are going to start with Trinux (0.890) and follow their list of packages and freshmeat.net.

If anyone one knows of a tried and tested solution, we would be most grateful.

Thanx.
