Seven different BSD and Linux firewalls reviewed

November 16th, 2007 by Chris Buechler

Nice review from someone unrelated to the project.

“In the end, pfSense is ultimately the best choice overall and provides the best value of all we have looked at today.”

    I use smoothwall right now … it easy to use indeed .. but probably will switch to pfSense coz we will use load balancing… and … pfSense is the right choice in that situation … i guess :D

    The article was originally on the fsckin.com site. Wayne, fsckin.com’s admin and writer, has been having issues w/ content thieves. I hope you guys can link to the correct source next time.

    Post URL updated, thanks to those who pointed out the correct source. The originally linked URL is what Google Alerts found and that’s how I came across it, I didn’t realize it was plagiarized.

    Just found this, good to know that you’re already linking to my site instead of this bastard who keeps grabbing my content – lol. :)

    Surprisingly no mention of Untangle.
    It’s nice to see pfSense in a review, it’s a bit concerning that many of the other firewalls are turning into chunky master-of-none appliances.

    I know it’s late, but thanks Chris for correcting the URL.
