Projects / m0n0wall


m0n0wall is an all-in-one firewall software package that is based on FreeBSD. It is geared towards embedded PCs, but it also works on standard PCs. It includes an easy-to-use Web interface like commercial firewall boxes do. PHP is used instead of shell scripts, and the entire system configuration is stored in a single XML-formatted file. There is support for VPN, traffic shaping, captive portal, VLANs, and more.

            IPsec from OSX
            What is your favorite straight IPsec client for OSX?

            Maybe VaporSEC ?

            great stuff
            m0n0wall is great stuff & highly recommended. (if it has SSH built in to it, it would be damn near close to anything I ever needed)
