Thanks Pierre,

I don't know about security daemons on FreeBSD. I know that the system is
very secure when configured correctly and very stable.

Can you or somebody try to access http://bsd.soapdog.org and tell me if it
opens? I am having problems here with my ISP, it appears that people from
WAN are able to connect but from inside my LAN, the portfowarding is not
working.

:-D

PS: RevServer on FreeBSD so far looks good, soon, I will try connecting to
MySQL...
