    Default Firewall recommendation

    Hello,

    Our freebsd firewall died today i would like to propose a hardware based firewall to the management team. Can you recommend me one?

    We need the following:

    * nat
    * vpn (unlimited users preferably, no less than 15)
    * dmz
    * quality of service

    extra features are welcome.

    Sorry for the off-topic!

    A good firewall is the Endian Firewall (and it's what I use). It's available as a Hardware Appliance, Software Appliance or a Community Open Source version - take a look and see if it does what you want.

    Thanks!

    I'm installing it locally and if it's good i'm going to suggest buying the macro version.

    If you're trying the Community version don't forget that the hardware/software appliance has a slightly different version than the software only community version. There's a beta of the new release of the community version available and full details of the new features on the web site. Hope your test go OK.

    Keep FreeBSD as OS and use pfSense.
