Need some advice on my Firewall/Setup/Computer
I have a question about a firewall im going to set up. I was given an old computer, so I figured it would be a great opportunity to practice setting up firewalls, IPtables, IPMasquerading etc.
Here are the specs on the computer im going to use:
IBM Aptiva (still finding out all the information)
2gig Hard Drive--(It's a SCSI, so im trying to find out information for this drive...any suggestions?)
Rest are basics: keyboard, mouse, monitor etc.
This is the machine im going to be using for my firewall and eventually, IPMasquerading.
My question is, does anyone have a suggestion on which distribution would work best for a firewall? Im thinking of Debian, Slackware and possibly loading on OpenBSD through an FTP download.
Just wanted to get some feedback and suggestions here. Any suggestions would be great as well as links that would help.
