Re: [PLUG] Need to build a web gui for a router box--possible contract job opportunity.

It's a special purpose router that can't be replaced by anything that's 
available off the shelf today.  The company doesn't like to say more 
than that, even though I see little possible harm.  It has a different 
feature set, but the basic problem is routing between ports based on 
rules, and that part of the code is all done--complete with command line 
interface.  It needs a GUI to make it to the marketplace.

It's not a very large GUI, I really think it comparable to the web GUI 
found in Linksys and Netgear home router/firewall boxes.  Hence it's a 
mistake to stay with a keyboard/mouse/screen attached to the box.

I don't know what the actual processor and memory will be for the 
appliance versions.  I suspect that isn't nailed down yet.
