    IPCop Vs Smoothwall


    I'm thinking about setting up a independent firewall (because I can as much as security ), but I'm trying to decide between two.

    1. IPCop
    2. Smoothwall


    Would like to know what others recommend most. I would also like it to have a proxy feature (I think both include that, correct me if I'm wrong).
    Please advice and suggestions are welcome, other wise just simply post what one you would choose and why.

    I use smoothwall. But they're both good. Get the free versions and try them both out - see which you like the best.

    GUI's are nice but if you really want to learn use IPTABLES.
