REQ: recommendations for home network firewall

Post by NoNameHe » Fri, 21 Jun 2002 13:15:55

I am looking for your recommendations for an easy-to-use SOHO type of

Currently, I run the free version of Astaro Security Linux 3.2.  It
uses Stateful Packet Inspection, and has a cool little SMTP relay that
will store mail for me if I crash my email server (a frequent
occurance as I toy with different Exchange 2K configurations).

However, it has a 10-IP address limit for my internal LAN.  I am at 8
IPs, and will be getting a couple of more Pentium-][ computers in the
next month from work.

So, anyone know of a product similar to the Astaro, but without the
10-IP limit, preferably with the built-in SMTP relay???
