Hi all, I am quite new to firewalls, and have previously only used Zone Alarm on networked clients and gateways. I am currently setting up a network and had originally thought of using Linux on a computer for gateway/firewall for the Network
The internet connection is a 512K ADSL MODEM. The network will be 1 logon\\DHCP Win 2000 Adserv, and 4 XP Clients.
I feel confident in setting up a simple Linux firewall (Smoothwall), but which one offers the best protection or is more suited to my network?
Bearing in mind that I would also like to have VPN Access.
"Linux Firewall" or something like the "NETGEAR FVS318 8 Tunnel VPN/Firewall Router with 8 x 10/100 Switch"
What is the best firewall/configuration setup?
Ps I don't have static IP!
Thanks in advance for all your help.
