I use IP-Cop at www.ipcop.org
and OpenVPN at www.openvpn.se
and a bunch of plugin's I have 8 of these in service
now... Overall it is easy to install. I use an old computer
with 2 NIC's Windows 98 Boxes work real well...
I have used New Dells due to customer preferences
and I was short of old boxes. (Nice to Recycle!!)
Only drawback, You have to install 2 of the packages
from the command line, and a working knowelege of
Linux is good too!!!

I've used and managed all sorts of Firewalls...
Cisco PIX, Checkpoint FW/1 (on Nokia hardware), Juniper NetScreen, PF on Open- and FreeBSD, FreeBSD IPFilter (ipf). They all have their pros and cons, use the one that bests suits your situation.
The guy that said he's using iptables on FreeBSD (I've been using FBSD since 3.0) just made my day
Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
