    Which firewall distro can i use


    So i am new to the firewall distro world, i am used to ubuntu and debian though so familiar with linux. What i am after now is setting up a home firewall server, already have a mini itx board with 2 NICs onboard but stumped as to what distro i can use. Most are fine but what i want is one that i can setup to connect to a USA VPN service (my-private-network) and put all traffic through that. Hope this is standard but i dont know hence asking.

    Any ideas on distro and how to do this would be appreciated.

    If you are a debian fan you can try Zentyal
    If you are a redhat fan you can opt for ClearOS

    There are many other dedicated firewall distros like IPCOP .. etc

    Try wiki- Linux Firewall Distributions

    Have a look at m0n0wall. It isn't actually GNU/Linux, it is built on FreeBSD which is another great open source Unix. I really liked just how flexible it is and it has built in support for PPTP and IPSec based VPNs. And it has a nice little webGUI that you can pipe through an SSL tunnel.
