I don't run my servers through IPCop. It is just for internet access and
office to office tunnels. It is a lot easier to set up and do things then the
Siemens T1 router I am stuck with at the demark. Its firewall language seems
just different enough to give me fits when I use it.  And I don't hose
everything with one fat-fingered typo.
