After eleven months of development, version 1.33 of the FreeBSD-based m0n0wall embedded firewall distribution has been released.
Manuel Kasper mentions that m0n0wall 1.33 includes several improvements over previous versions and will probably be the last version based on FreeBSD 6.4.
Some of the changes are:
- a new image type “generic-pc-serial” has been added; the only difference to generic-pc is that it always uses the serial console
- added Realtek customized network chip driver to support additional chipsets
- updated ipfilter to 4.1.33
- inbound NAT rules can now be added on the LAN interface with the WAN address as a target; this helps with accessing servers on an optional interface from the LAN interface by using m0n0wall’s WAN IP address
