   IPCop is a spin-off from Smoothwall, apparently after a disagreement
between the development team members. The last time I looked, there had been
no further development of Smoothwall. IPCop can now handle four interfaces
with configurable access rules, green to your protected network, orange DMZ
for webservers, etc, red for the internet, and blue for wireless. The
minimum requirement is 486, 12MB RAM, and a small hard disc, but anything
more is a bonus. The intrusion detection system snort has very frequent
rules updates available, and there is a stated future development plan.
