Re: [PLUG] SonicWall compatible firewall and VPN

pfsense does a lot of the same, but it's bsd based.
I've found it easy to use.  Runs on x86 hardware (+ geode, via epia, etc).

You can find some inexpensive network hardware that is re purposed for pfsense on ebay:  http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_nkw=pfsense&_sacat=0&_odkw=endian&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313

 ..or you can run it on an old celeron with multiple nics off a usb flash drive.

I've been using a pc engines alix box for openvpn for a couple years.  Works great.
