today I rewired my network to include a lovely openbsd firewall. Spent most of the day getting the routing, NAT and redirecting working and managed, finally, to reproduce the functionality I had without the firewall. Progress!

One issue: I was directing two static IP addresses into the firewall in the hopes that I could route packets based on the destination IP. I think that was working, but when I initiate connections outbound the packets don't know how to get back, so nothing happens. (cf CO149's Fundamental Dictum Number 1(tm)) or sometimes it works and sometimes not. So, I stopped with the second IP and all works fine. Do I need to maintain two separate NAT tables, perhaps?

War Is a Racket, by Major General Smedley D. Butler, USMC, 1933

General Butler is the recipient of two, count 'em, two Medals of Honor. Every Marine recruit is well educated in Butler's exploits in Mexico and Haiti. He's held up as a paragon. But no Marine recruit is taught that war is a racket. For some reason, this little book wasn't passed out to us in boot camp. It's too bad; if anyone has earned the right to be heard, General Butler has.
