Building Redundant & Transparent Firewalls with OpenBSD

The next ScotLUG meeting will be on Thursday 22nd January at the usual spot, the Electron Club in the CCA. We should be kicking around the Electron Club around 7:00PM.

This month we’ve got a talk by Fred Crowson on about his favourite project: OpenBSD. ScotLUG is happening a little earlier this month as a number of us wont be available the week later.

OpenBSD: Redundant Transparent Bridges. Building Transparent Firewalls with CARP and pf on OpenBSD: a practical introduction to building redundant firewalls for the practically paranoid.

Open Source and Q&A As always, we’re going to have a 20 minute session at the end for a Linux or Open Source Q&A session. It is our hope that you can use this time to work on/ with a project that you’re really passionate about, if not get advice on how to go about doing this.

We will be adjourning to a local bar afterwards, the exact location to be confirmed as we need to check on availability of space at the CCA Bar.

As always, for more information – you can visit the website at

Hope to see you all there!
