We are live!

Well, technically we’ve been live for about 4 hours, but I didn’t realize at the time that using DNAT with iptables actually caused the NATed server to become unavailable from the LAN. I was actually trying to get everything setup in FwBuilder, but I may have hit a limitation since I could not find a way to do “-A POSTROUTING -s -j SNAT –to-source” I must say this was an interesting learning experience. I just now hope that I did enough to secure my server. This whole process would have been much simpler if I only had known what I know now (what’s that you’re saying? Hindsight is 20/20?) Well, it’s almost midnight now, and I should be getting to sleep. What a worthwhile and frustrating night it’s been!
