3Com's OfficeConnect Firewall

Specific Notes

When the firewall starts up, it attempts to contact the default WAN router entered in the configuration (or, one assumes, in the last received DHCP lease). If this unit is not available, the firewall assumes that the WAN is down and does not pass packets across. So far the only known way to make the firewall see the WAN default route when it is in this state is to reboot it. Note that this contacted IP address does not have to remain present, it is only mandatory at startup.

This firewall resets quickly, in the 10 to 15 second time frame.

This is a collection of techical information, much of it learned the hard way. Consider it a lab book or a /info directory. I doubt much of it will be of use to anyone else.
