Wanted: Linux based Firewall

I'm looking for a linux based firewall that I can put at my network border. Features I am looking for: Hardware Firewall, GUI interface, 3DES VPN capable.

Thanks everyone!

Heres a few to look at if you plan to build your own..

By hardware based Firewall, are you looking for an appliance ?

Appliance firewalls that run linux..
Checkpoint UTM-1
I believe Vyatta and Imagestream have appliance solutions available as well.

Rep: Reputation: 41 is another one worth looking at. They also do appliances. Be forewarned though, I have had to do alto of fiddlign to get certain features to work that it was never intended for. Just in case you are in a unique networkign situation.
