The Firewall Project

Phase 6: Daily Use

One of the benefits of running a Unix based Firewall is that the operating system is not going to crash on a daily basis like Windows platforms do. As a result, there is not much to do on a daily basis. Once you boot up the machine, you can log in as ROOT and experiment with basic Unix commands if you like, but thats about all the machine does.

From my experience with other Unix variants (Linux, BSD) this box will probably run great for months at a time without ever rebooting. So, you aren't going to experience the joy of constantly messing with it. :-)

I recommend you go out and get a book about Unix like I did.
