check out ipcop....been using it for a while and it's great, was developed from smoothwall, here are a couple of tutorial that should help you get started

The main reasons I switched to endian from smoothwall was at the time
I did not have the 2003 box so I didnt have a good client vpn solution
and endian provided one. Also endian has more options and features
that appealed to me. I will look into ipcop and untangle as I havent
studied those.

Good morning,

What are your reasons for not using SmoothWall again?
I run Untangle at home on some modest hardware and like it.

For a client VPN solution I am a fan of Hamachi.

Have a great weekend.
