I would add to this list the need to maintain the connection to the Internet responsibly -- which includes:
  • Don't leak packets with non-routable (RFC 1918) addresses to the Internet.
  • Any mail relay used has had the configuration locked down such that it is not surreptitiously (or intentionally) used to propagate spam.
I would highly recommend learning networking before connecting to the Internet. Any mistakes made could adversely effect everyone.
