I have one question. I want a distribution for firewall, with dhcp server, traffic shaping, etc, just like pfSense. It has all the things I want from "firewall" point of view, but on the other hand I want a distribution with Apache server, MySQL, etc, and these aren't installed in pfSense and I can't install them. For "application" point of view I liked OpenSUSE.
Can you tell me a distribution that can satisfy my needs?
Any linux distro should be able to fulfil your needs however these are really 2 different server roles - firewall and app server, are you sure you want to combine them ?
Plus, if you use the traffic shaping in pfSense, you may be hard pressed to replicate it easily with another distro
Yes, I know these roles shouldn't be combined, but I don't have an extra server to make one firewall and one application server. All I want is an application server, with some firewall functions, such as traffic shaping. I tried installing HTB on OpenSUSE but it didn't worked.
