Network Firewall Question


Recommended Posts

I know that the Smooth Wall - Smoothie :) solution was a segment on episode 2x08, but I was wondering if anyone here knows if Smooth Wall is better than the IP-Cop firewall - which is the firewall my network is behind at the moment.

Thx in advance,

OpenBSD's Packet Filter is the 'absolute' best, it's not very user friendly.

Indeed. Anyone that uses the Linux kernel on a firewall is always going to have security issues, although you kind of have to know what your doing to use those security issues most of the time. OpenBSD has had very few vulnerabilities in the last 10 years so it can be trusted to a point. FreeBSD based firewalls are okay but i wouldn't trust them like OpenBSD.
