BrickHouse is pretty good
Authored by: 47ronin on Jul 09, '02 02:07:47PM
I've found that BrickHouse has made it easy to initially set up my firewall rules and IP sharing over two simultaneous interfaces (second ethernet card and Airport). Later on after studying how it works I figured out ipfw myself. You will need to learn this because BrickHouse, even with its great simplicity, doesn't totally allow you to customize firewall rules (that's why it has an Expert button), but any time you switch back to Quick it overwrites your configuration.
IP Sharing works great but it seems that ever since I applied the June Security Update I've had to manually toggle IP sharing off then on to get the NAT'd internal computers to see the Net after I reboot my router mac (G4). The new beta of BrickHouse has been in development for a while but I don't know when it will ever be released. Supposedly it lets you edit interfaces so you can add more than one for sharing.
