1. Introduction

Welcome to IPCop.

Use these directions to quickly install IPCop. If you are upgrading from an earlier version of IPCop, using settings backed up onto a floppy disk, or want a more detailed description of the installation procedure, refer to the Installation Manual.

These instructions assume you have a suitable PC available with a monitor, keyboard, network card and CDROM drive fitted, and are going to install a system with a Local Area Network (the GREEN network), and a modem/ADSL or cable modem connection to the Internet (the RED network).
