Recommended embedded hardware



  • Hi

    I want to setup a firewall using (embedded) hardware being able to handle 50mbit (vdsl) and having >=3 LAN ports.
    I had a look at the FX5620 at http://linitx.com/product_info.php?cPath=4&products_id=909and at the hundreds of possibilites at http://www.ipc2u.com.

    What would you buy or recommend?
    What processing power is required to handle vpn (out) with 5mbit?

    Thanks for your thoughts!



  • The linitx is a very nice platform (I have 2 in service at customerlocations) and powerful enough to produce high LAN to LAN throughput. It's also powerful enough to handle much more than the required 5 mbit/s. Once pfSense fully supports the via padlock technology that the in this device used cpu offers vpn encryption will be done "on the fly" without causing much processorload. I rather would go a linitx fx5620.
