Looking for Linux Firewall
« on: May 22, 2015, 06:45:54 AM »
Hey guys - looking for your recommendations for open source firewalls out there. I recently installed ZeroShell -> http://www.zeroshell.org/ and am testing it on a VM guest running on KVM. This seems to fit the bill, but I am looking for others to try out to compare with.

Some of the things I am looking for:

  • Secure Firewall & NAT for a home / small business network
  • Provide a transparent proxy with AV (no need to config client browsers so it works with my Amiga as well)
  • VPN Client for mobile users  with L2TP/IPsec
  • Runs on Linux (on bare metal install)
  • Has Web interface for administration ( I am not a Linux geek)
  • Radius server for Wireless networks (EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS and PEAP)
  • Active Directory authentication
  • Must be easy to configure (again, I am not a Linux geek...)

Zeroshell is excellent. I've also searched for a decent firewall solution and Zeroshell was by far the best free firewall that I came across. Check IPCop and PFSense as well and see if they live up to your expectations.

I setup these firewalls as VMs to test the differences, just made life a lot easier.
