I have been all over the net and finally found a site you folks might like: http://forums.practicallynetworked.com/
You know, for about 25 years Windows has served me well, but I am now a confirmed Linux guy. Time to move on.
For the past few weeks I have reviewed virtually every Gigabit ethernet router (No wireless, thank you) including a pretty sexy piece of equipment like the Habey BIS-6634
My conclusions, hopefully they will help: Ethernet routers are toys that offer a false sense of security and Network appliances can be built to your own specifications.
Question: Can anyone point me in the direction for more info and advice about "Building a Linux Network Appliance"
Thanks, and All the Best to the Best Darned Forum on the net!
