Hello,

My old centrino box is getting a bit long in the tooth, but of course it runs Smoothwall (www.smoothwall.org) very well.  It's basically a firewall, with two ethernet connections, one for the wild and wooly internet and one for your home network.

But I'd rather use a plugcomputer, for minimal power consumption.

Anyone ported it, or otherwise tried it out?  I assume there are USB ethernet adapters that I could use for the other ethernet connection?

Thanks!

have a look at the guruplug plus. it has 2 x gigabit nic's.
you can however, run a router or gw on 1 nic using a managed switch with vlans.
as for smoothwall, i'm unsure.

Looks like it's a whole distro. Do they have an ARM branch that'll work on the plug? I use "Shorewall" which was simply a Debian package I was able to install on my existing Debian install.  It works great, pretty easy to use.

COOL, so you installed "Shorewall" on your Sheevaplug device?  Or onto a more standard Debian box?

THANKS!

Yeah, onto my SheevaPlug.. Just did an "aptitude install shorewall", configured it and off it went. Using a usb-ethernet adapter for the internet side.. Smiley
