Which distribution for NAT/Firewall linux with web interface ?
 
Hello,

I'm looking for a linux distribution for NAT/Firewalling purpose, with a web interface.

I found some, like Smoothwall, clearOS, but seems they are "firewall oriented", and not really a good choice for NAT purpose.

Do you have some ideas about "NAT oriented" distribution ?



Basically, this is my architecture:

Code:

Architecture:

| Internet <--------> NAT/Firewall <-----|--> Multiple servers |
+----------+        +--------------+    |                    |
                                        |_____________________|


Thanks,

Some points:
If you go to distrowatch, and look for 'small business' distros (or something similar) you'll find a list of just about all of them

doesn't make much sense, to me. Iptables is the underlying firewall program. It does natting (if you understand it). You just have to configure it.

If you want the definitive iptables guide, read http://www.frozentux.net/documents/iptables-tutorial/
