Hey Guys,

I'm thinking of running a firewall using another machine. "Why?" I hear you ask well the answer is because I have money (...and no woman to steal it from me ;) ) and loads of free time. So why not? :D

The thing is, I dont really want a huge bulky machine just doing a simple task so I did some looking around and found the Linutop and the Fit-PC Slim.

So, my question is would either of these two be able to run a firewall program of some sort?

Thanks :D

Sure. You could even use an old box with no hard drive, just a Live CD as long as you have a NIC in and a NIC out............
