"The Linux Router Project, or LRP for short, came to my attention from Charles Shapiro's phenomenal presentation about the project. He was the special guest speaker at the Atlanta Linux Enthusiasts meeting on December 9, 1999. The purpose of LRP is to have a Linux-based router and configure downline computers on a LAN to connect to it."

"With LRP, only the main Linux box or router will be connected to the Internet and the downline sets will share the Internet access from the LRP machine. LRP uses the Linux kernel's IP Masquerade features to shuffle packets of information to and from the client machine through the LRP and out to the Internet service provider."

"It's easy and relatively inexpensive to build yourself a Linux Router Project system. The total cost could range between $60 to $150 for this project. For Charles Shapiro, his total cost was in the area of $60 to build his LRP."
