Hi guys,

I'm about to start a project which needs a cheap but effective firewall.  I
have been reading conflicting reports regarding application proxy firewalls
and was was hoping to hear some of your opinions on the subject.

The one server behind the firewall to begin with will be a LAMP web server
hosting about 6 sites.

Is a proxy server the way to go here or should I be sticking to stateful
packet filtering?

Thanks for any input you can offer,
