OK, FEDORA Core 3, HTTPD Ver 2.??? The one shiped on the CORE 3 ISOs.
Everything els as it was shipped on the core3 ISOs.
The box sits behind a RH9 Box, acting as router and firewall using gShield
IP-Tables script, The server is nated, No DMZ..
The firewall is stealth, nothing incoming allowed except port 80 and port
443. everything else is dropped.

With best regards

Tomas Larsson
