'[ot] Recommend router with LARGE forwarding table?'

I have a number of machines behind my wired linksys router, and with the number
of services I need to remotely access, have run out of port forwarding table entries.

Can anyone recommend a wired (or wireless, I'll just turn of the RF) router that
has a MUCH greater than a 10 entry forward table? I prefer to use a router appliance
because of size and power consumption issues.
(10W & 0.04 cu ft vs 110 W and  2.1 cu ft for a PC running linux).

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

Get one of the Linksys routers that run Linux (WRT54GL is one of them).
Update it with one of the prebuilt Linux firmwares out there. Nearly
unlimited port forwarding entries once you have a linux command prompt.

I think that some routers have more entries/capabilities than they show in
their web interface. Some have an additional telnet interface, others you
may be able to "trick" by creating your own post command. With some you
also can use the UPnP interface to configure them. Maybe worth a shot.

For what it's worth, my SMC Barricade Turbo (wireless) (not sure of
actual model) has 20 forwarding lines in the web interface....

you could use something like a wrt54g with custom firmware (provided you are happy administering iptables without a luser friendly frontend).

Agreed with Peter, but you can easily find PC's that don't take up
that much space or consume that much power.  Look up "mini-itx"
motherboards, especially the older "fanless" variety, for just one of
MANY examples of PC's designed for the "pseudo-embedded" market.

I have a Soekris net4501 I'd like to sell. It's running FreeBSD and you
can forward a thousand ports if you want.

Excellent examples of said devices are available from Soekris
engineering (search google)
I've used a few net4501s running FreeBSD and they last practically
forever and you get whatever flexibility you desire.
