Hi there everyone,
I am a relative newbie to linux but my experiences so far have been great. I have been running a red hat file server and an IP cop firewall for a couple of years now and they are wonderful.
I am moving factory in a month and thought it would be a good time to but the business (read: my new toy
) a 19" rackmount for servers, telephones etc...
Ip cop has been great as a firewall 100% reliable and straight forward to use. Now that I am moving I have decided that I need to restrict access to the internet from specific (most) machines on the network. The problem is that I will not always be here to configure the system (and I am not that good with config files and scripts) so I need something with a nice GUI. I was looking at getting two machines one with a firewall either IP cop or Devil-linux and another for content filtering and access restriction possibly censornet but that is twice as many machines, network cards etc... to go wrong.
Does anyone know of a good linux distro or add on for a distribution that will act as both a firwall, DHCP server and content/access filter that is simple to use?
Thanks in advance for any help...
