Few issues

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 71.126.197.202] on December 10, 2008 01:14 PM
I have been playing with firewall/router distros and I am total newbie. The thing I am missing in SmoothWall is MAC spoofing, a feature that is readily available on pfSense as well as on my Linksys router. I managed to "spoof" MAC address by editing /etc/rc.d/rc.netaddress.up file. However, I would prefer web GUI option to change that.

Another issue I have is that I cannot have MSN video working. This could be related to web proxy. Unfortunately, I have not found any hints how to fix that. Everything works in pfSense and I believe with IPCop I did not have this issue (but not sure now). Any input on how to fix MSN video would be highly appreciated.
