I recently got a DSL modem through Verizon (which is a story by itself) so I disconnected my G4 from my "home network" which includes a 5-port hub connected to a LaserJet 4050 and a variety of other computers (older Macs running 7.5.3 and 8.6 and also PCs running 2000 and XP). So now I want to connect it again but I want to make sure that my home network is completely safe from the outside world (I'm running the built-in firewall on my G4 through BrickWall on 10.2.8 ).
So what is the best way of doing this? It would be nice if the various computers on my network could access the internnet (when the G4 is on) but that is not absolutely neccessary. BTW I have an extra ethernet card for my G4 is that helps.
