Open Source Firewalls - Untangle and pfSense comparison

,----[ Quote ]
| So this week I had the opportunity of setting 
| up a little lab to test both of these 
| firewalls. Before this week I had no idea 
| these firewalls even existed, and the only 
| open source routing/firewall software I even 
| knew of at the time was Vyatta; which is 
| really only for routing purposes.

Building a better Firewall Builder

,----[ Quote ]
| Back in 1999, Vadim Kurland realized he needed a
| better way to configure a Linux firewall than
| the then-typical process of issuing cryptic
| commands or editing a text-based configuration
| file full of esoteric settings. Fortunately, he
| had lots of experience with commercial firewalls
| that he was able to apply to the problem. The
| result was Firewall Builder, a firewall
| configuration and management tool that lets
| administrators build firewall policies using a
| GUI, then push the configuration to firewall
| machines. It supports the open source firewall
| platforms iptables, pf, ipfw, and ipfilter, as
| well as Cisco ASA (PIX) and IOS access lists,
| and makes all these very different firewalls
| appear the same to the administrator.
