[html email sucks by the way]
There isn't really much to it, since NetBSD is fairly secure by
default. Make sure you apply the latest security patches (especially
if you aren't using -current), and disable all services but ssh,
since this is going to be a firewall. And of course don't give out
user accounts on your firewall. After that you should be set.
