Firewall

By alciur22 ·
I want to setup a machine to act as a firewall on an NT Network. We use a static DSL router to get mail into the network to the exchange server. Any suggestions on firewall software and Operating Systems to put on the pC acting as a firewall.

os: for security reasons install w2k or nt.
Software use winproxy. or winroute, or the one of Symantec.

Use Windows NT and don't use this machine for anything else than routing / firewalling.

For firewall, I would suggest Wingate (the latest version) which is fairly complete.

I'm a big fan of Linux software for a router/firewall machine. In particular, the Linux Router Project (LRP) software has proven to be a stable, secure product and it is compact enough to run from a single floppy. The support from the open-source community that supports this project has been outstanding and generally superior to that of the Microsoft products.

You can find information and disk images at http://lrp.steinkuehler.net.

You say you want to use a PC; consider a
SUN Solaris workstation (older used one)
running Solaris 8 or above and using SunScreen firewall software; that is what I
am using; Sunscreen is fairly easy to use,
Solaris-Sparc solutions are very stable and
so far at least viruses and worms do not infect SUN machines.
