Who ever saves me the work of looking this up can get a 3 pints out of me.
I normally use hardware firewalls due to reliability, performance, completeness in features etc. and most software firewalls I've seen or had to use have always pissed me off due to limitations or hardware reliability.
Having thought about these Sun Netra T1/105 I have with 6 ethernet ports I think they would make a good firewall if I had a decent software to run on it.
So here are the requirements.
- Works as a transparent bridge and is able to take into account it has 5 segments around it.
- Two of the FE ports can be aggregated using Cisco Fast Ether Channel for the untrusted side.
- Runs on Sun Netra, support the Quad FE card using Free/NetBsd or solaris.
- Has to do complete family of IP protocols, not just TPC, UDP and ICMP.
I am not interested in Linux. Lets spare ourselves the argument.
