I've been using Mandrake for a few years now and am a very satisfied Linux user.
I've used a Windows 2000 router with nat/dns/dhcp/ect...
I've also used Mandrake as the same thing.
I would like to use a distro that is optimized for router use with a web interface.
Webmin works but I would prefer one specific to the distro as with shorewall (http://shorewall.sourceforge.net
I've looked at a few different distros and am running ipcop firewall version 1.3.0 with patches up to 9 (http://www.ipcop.org
) right now.
I'm happy with this except it seems not to work with more then 2 ethernet cards.
It's built from shorewall and uses the same green/red network setup.
I would like to have one card on red (wan side) using dhcp and the rest of the cards on green (lan side) on different subnets.
The server has an Intel MMX processor @ 200 Mhz with 128 MB SDRAM.
i386 or i586 is needed.
I would like to have the following features on the router;
2) Port forwarding (NAT)
4) DHCP (Static and dynamic)
5) Intrusion detection system (Updatable signatures)
6) Bandwidth monitoring
7) Support for more then 2 nics
8) Log rotating, security checks and other stuff like that would be a plus
Thank you for any help.
