Offhand, I'm thinking that smoothwall might be able to do this.

Subject: Free Firewallsolution for a Testlab with multiple Networks and VPN
we have currently a Testlab with a 192.168.1.0 net behind an iptables
Firewall. Remote Acces is currently done with a ssh-Tunnel to the firewall
and then connecting the machines via remote desktop.
Now the Lab will increase with more nets and more people accessing it.
(some of them should only be able to reach 2 PCs via Remote Desktop in
lets say the 192.168.2.0 net.)
Id like to do it the following way:
- Give the firewall more networkcards one for each net.
- Enhancing the IPTables (or replace with another free solution) that the
users can connect with Windows L2tP-Ipsec connection to the firewall. (I
dont want to install vpntools on the clientside). Depending on the
Username&PW of the VPN connection the Clientpcs will get different IPs in
the Testlabnet. User A will get 192.168.1.100 and User B 192.168.2.100.
- For the Users who only should reach 2 PCs I think its sufficient that
they only get Username&PW for the Remote desktop access.
As I am new to that stuff:
Can I do this with Iptables/Linux? What tools will I have to install for the
VPN connection from Windowsclients on the Firewall? Is there a Howto? ;-)
I know with the Astaro Firewall I could do this and I would have a nice &
easy interface.. but iam not allowed to spent money
Is there comparable
Thanks for your help!
