Narh I'm not one to protect the innocent most of the time.  Not quite
that paranoid.

What I've got is cipcb0 on the isp side with an ip of,
and cipcb0 on my side with  Over the VPN link I have routed to me.  Cipe is using eth1 to communicate via
my cable modem to the other ISP's cable modem (cable is with
Optus@Home, but those bastards block port 25 and 80 (and some others),
so I am basically setting it up so that I can use some non-filtered
IP's for web and e-mail).

I didn't mind too much that port 25 has been blocked, but they have
blocked port 80 because of the Code Red worm.  Pitty linux users need
to suffer because of incompetent wanna-be sysadmins.  I wanted port 80
because I have a few personal websites and some other site I host for
a mate because she doesn't want to risk her internet account by
putting the website on their ISP's server (it's a dope (marijuana)
orientated website).
