New home gateway router (part 3) — network configuration

This is just some notes and links about how I set up the firewall and PPPoE on RHEL 7.

For firewalld, a very useful reference is: http://www.certdepot.net/rhel7-get-started-firewalld/ To enable IPv4 masquerading, see this mailing list posting.

For PPPoE, as always the ArchLinux wiki pages are the best.

    Obviously not available just yet, but there should be dual ethernet ‘Braswell’ based boards showing up at computex. Here’s a dual ethernet industrial focused mini-itx board. http://techreport.com/news/28300/braswell-quad-powers-passively-cooled-asrock-mini-itx-board
    Some of these types of boards are available with a DC input on the external port cluster. If someone were to produce a really affordable enclosure (3D printing project maybe?) then these ‘thinITX’ boards could be a good alternative to the NUC/BRIX self contained units. Although they’ll be a bit larger, they should also be cheaper.

    Richard, I saw this and then remembered that I replied to a post of yours about a year ago. This is the latest-gen Intel celeron/pentium platform. Has two eth ports, so might be of interest to you as far as routers go. I’m not sure what crypto instructions are available, but the previous gen – braswell – supported AES-NI so I expect this will too. If nothing else, the quite capable braswell systems should come down in price a little.
