Our perimiter firewall had a s/w problem (Juniper) and in order to even talk to someone you have to have a valid contract, if not you need to purchase from the day it lapsed, not just call and talk!
Now, in it's place I stuck an old Dell poweredge 1850, 4 nic's, Ubuntu-server 9.10 and made my own iptable rules. Things are back working, a lot of rules added, etc. but now I am ready for something a little corporate like. Doesn't have to be flash dashboards, etc. but wondering what people are using in this matter.
I have looked at ipcop, not sure on it's ability for corporate, rules, etc. but does have some simple mrtg graphs etc. which I do want also. I know smoothwall is out there, but don't think it's free, but I mean I can look http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of..._distributions
here and one by one read, etc. but really looking for a basic firewall application / server like I have now with the following;
1. web interface, I have all my rules in a flat file, update and continually do an iptables-restore < file but want something more than I can do.
2. traffic graphs, etc. is a nice to have
3. VPN. I would like something that includes an ipsec VPN for iPhone connectivity (as the terminal app kicks butt on the jailbroke phone, but need outside access)
I am open to trying anything local so all ideas (well most of them) :P are appreciated!
