We have been having problems with the DNS Servers at our ISP (the
phone company) for some time. Frequently, slow DNS or no DNS. I didn't
call them, until about 10 days ago, after I tried to get to a secure
server at irs.gov and I got a warning from Firefox, that the SSL
certificate belonged to opendns.com
I am going to look at opendns.com first for "public DNS".

I will update the Backup IPCop box, and then backup, before I start
playing with the settings.

I will backup to floppy (it's an old box with a floppy drive) and also
to my Desktop.
