James_A Posted August 6, 2009 Share Posted August 6, 2009 There's a number of free firewall distributions out there, such as IPCop and SmoothWall Express. They usually are based on Linux and run happily on hardware that is too old to run Windows XP (or later). I'm thinking of trying one out on some old hardware I have. No fans (except the PSU) and -- very -- quiet! Has anyone had any experience of building/installing/running any of these? If so, how did it go? Which distro would you recommend? .
