m0n0wall is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded PC, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software).
m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD, along with a web server, PHP and a few other utilities. The entire system configuration is stored in one single XML text file to keep things transparent.
m0n0wall is probably the first UNIX system that has its boot-time configuration done with PHP, rather than the usual shell scripts, and that has the entire system configuration stored in XML format.
What's New in This Release:В· a new image type "generic-pc-serial" has been added; the only difference to generic-pc is that it always uses the serial console (on COM1 at whatever speed the BIOS set it to)
В· reintroduced original FreeBSD if_re driver (to fix missing support for 8139C+) and added Realtek patched driver under a new name (if_rg) with lower priority to ensure that the Realtek patched driver is only used if the stock FreeBSD if_re/if_rl can't handle the device
В· DHCPv6: fixup for sla-id being 0
В· disallow webGUI passwords with colons (:) as mini_httpd has trouble handling them
В· fix broken captive portal sessions when per-user bandwidth limitation is used and changes in the webGUI are made that require reloading the traffic shaper (reported by Robert Solomon)
System Requirements:No special requirements.
Program Release Status: Minor Update
Program Install Support: Install and Uninstall
