Thread: To serve and protect

    Post To serve and protect

    Since we have this Firewall discussion I would like to hear some OpenBSD users talk about their OpenBSD firewalls.
    Free or Net BSD people are welcome to join in too.

    I used to have a sparc running OpenBSD, now that I´m getting adsl I´m configuring a old i386 box as a firewall.
    Will test it out soon.
    Been using OpenBSD for almost 2 years now. Offcourse, it´s not as popular as FreeBSD or NetbSD but it makes a good firewall and secure OS.

    By saying openbsd firewall, I am assuming you mean IPF. I have been using IPF on both openbsd and freebsd for quite some time now, and it is awesome. Definately just as good as any other firewall IMHO.

    I actually like IPF better than IPCHAINS or IPTABLES because the rules are written in plain english and are easier to understand.

    IPF yes, but some ppl (Mrwall aka etsh) argue that it isn´t all that good.
    I´m waiting for a comment on that.
