making a pc into a hardware firewall?

5 posts in this topic

can anyone explain basically how to set up an older computer to be a firewall? i mean really from step 1; ie the pc doesn't even have an operating system on it, so which would be best, etc.

thanks!

Check out this thread. A few ideas there, like OpenBSD. You'll need two network cards though, for starters.

If you're "decent" with linux then I would suggest either IPCOP or SmoothWall

They have pretty good tutorials on their sites. Keep in mind you need two NICs
