I planed to setup a leased line connection to the Internet. Other than
IPCHAINS. What other recommendations of commercial grade or free
Firewalls is recommended?

A. Packet filtering
C. Stateful firewall
If the answer is A, a Linux box using IPChains can, IMHO, be made as
secure as a 'black box' product that does only packet filtering.
If the answer is B, look into either/both of basic masquerade, or
If the answer is C, perhaps someone else could help you... ;)

I would appreciate any feedback to help me with this problem.
Our company is trying to set up an e-mail/web infrastructure.
We need a box that can sit between the WAN router and our
local LAN. The following are the requirements.
1) OK to be commercial and/or expensive.
2) Should distribute internal e-mail and route
mail externally. Should provide POP3 and IMAP
3) Should support the internet and and intranet (different websites
4) Should provide a firewall.
5) Should provide VPN functionality so that traveling employees
can access their e-mail securely. (Ideally, the VPN client
should work from a browser, or at least be cross-platform,
windows and linux). But we can live without the cross-platform
in a pinch.
6) Should be scaleable to several hundred users.
7) SHOULD BE EASILY ADMINISTRABLE. A piece of cheese should be
able to administer it (my boss's own words).
8) A DHCP server built in.
9) Commercial support should be available.
My boss wants to use NT with a big-ass server from Dell, but he said
he is willing to consider linux if I can find a solution that
supports the above criteria.
I looked into the Cobalt Qube, but it does not support VPNs and
does not scale beyond 150 users. (Am I wrong?) Does anyone sell some
software that puts together all the free linux tools into an easily
useable form? We would be willing to pay fairly serious money.
