How everything started

In May, 2000 Frank Meyer posted on the newsgroup de.alt.comm.isdn4linux announcing his initial creation of a one-disc-based i4l-router focussing on ease-of-use and low hardware requirements. The features were:

- Linux 2.0.35

- isdn4linux
- IP masquerading
- DNS server
- Networked imon-Clone

Hardware:
- AMD 486 DX4-100
- 16MB RAM
- 10 Mbit network card (NE2000 clone)
- Teles 16.3 ISDN card
- Only a disc drive
- 1 Boot disc containing the complete system

With additional programs he accomplished to display the state of the router on the client. For the original text refer to the german page
