The Manitoba UNIX User Group (MUUG) will be holding its next monthly
meeting on Tuesday, April 10.  The meeting topic for this month is
as follows:

   pfSense Firewall

   Adam Thompson will talk about (and demonstrate, if all goes
   well) pfSense, a wholly UNIX-based network firewall and network
   services appliance that can run on anything from embedded
   devices up to the latest super-servers. pfSense is based on
   FreeBSD, and thus uses the pf(4) packet filtering framework
   from OpenBSD to do most of the heavy lifting. Supporting
   multi-WAN, HTTP acceleration, DNS, DHCP, authentication, and
   wireless NIC's among other features, it's an ideal system for
   someone who wants a free, open-source firewall that's still
   incredibly easy to manage.

   April's RTFM will feature the date(1) command, presented by
   Michael Doob.

The group holds its general meetings at 7:30pm on the second Tuesday of
every month from September to June.  (There are no meetings in July and
August.) Meetings are open to the general public; you don't have to be a
MUUG member to attend.

   Please note our meeting location: The IBM offices, at 400 Ellice Ave.
   (between Edmonton and Kennedy). When you arrive, you will have to
   sign in at the reception desk, and then wait for someone to take you
   (in groups) to the meeting room. Please try to arrive by about 7:15pm, 
   so the meeting can start promptly at 7:30pm. Don't be late, or you may
   not get in.  (But don't come too early either, since security may not
   be there to let you in before 7:15 or so.) Non-members may be required
   to show photo ID at the security desk.

   Limited parking is available for free on the street, either on Ellice
   Ave. or on some of the intersecting streets. Indoor parking is also
   available nearby, at Portage Place, for $5.00 for the evening. Bicycle
   parking is available in a bike rack under video surveillance located
   behind the building on Webb Place.
