One comment from experience is whatever firewall flavour you do settle
on , is make sure you run it with RCS or at least mail yourself a backup
copy of the firewall to capture any changes. Saves a lot of pain in
troubleshooting later on. ;)

Subject: [sclug] Linux Firewalls and ADSL


I am looking into building a linux firewall router to act as a border to
network.  I have been allocated five fixed IP addresses.  I want to
build a
DMZ where I wish to run webservers.  Additionally I want to be able to
connect from another Internet location over a VPN to my Windows 2003
Internal addresses need to be NAT'ed.

I was looking at smoothwall and IPCop.  Has anybody got any comments on
these products or recommendations regarding other Linux firewall
I was looking at putting an ADSL PCI card in the firewall to connect to
Internet.  Does anybody have any recomendations for supported ADSL


Kind Regards
