Hey Bob,
  Thanks for the reply, I tried emailing the guy at Coyote
(wecoyote at and his email\domain is down. On one of the
sites, it said that he would send a configured copy upon request, but I
havent been able to send him a request. When I log in as root, i get a very
simple menu. I am not sure how to do much past that point. Do you suppose I
could get a copy of yours or maybe you could guide me through its setup. As
in ip allocations, ethernet cards being recognized, etc. ?

Well, I've been using the Coyote router project stuff and it has a
that builds the initial floppy after asking a few questions.  After it's
running, you can tweak some of the stuff from the 'lrcfg' program that's
when you log in as root.  I think that the linux router project stuff has a
configuration tool, too.  If you log in to the router as 'root', what do you

By the way, I have a customer with two LRP boxes running a VPN between them.
The reason that I can't remember how to configure them is because I haven't
to touch them since they were installed many months ago :-)
