    Firewall Appliance


    by fredj ·

    Anyone familiar with an inexpensive firewall appliance that I can use that has some features of enterprise level. I want to get some hands on experience. Even if it’s an older model.

    Thanks in advance for any recommendations

      are a lot of free ones and some that are inexpensive out there. PC Tools has a free one. I recently went through this exercise. I used Google.

      Get any old PC, two NICs & whatever Linux you like best.

      I’m getting to like Debian over Mandrake. I’ve greatly enjoyed iptables, and enthusiastically recommend the book [i]Linux Firewalls, Second Edition[/i] by Ziegler, publisher = New Riders.

      In addition to providing example firewalls for many common scenarios, he explained TCP/IP and firewall principles thoroughly, and succinctly enough that this novice now sprouts off like I know what I’m talking about!

      Can you price it?

      What would or how much would you consider “inexpensive” ?

      This would help to narrow down the field a bit.

        From the perspective of learning – about $100-200 and just to clarify I am not looking for a personal firewall.
