Hello at all,
After using a few years of IPFire and OPNsense i have to replace my hardware and take a look around whats new in both distributions.
It looks like a lot of changes were made on site of IPFire and the point which has bothered me a few years again (lack of vlan support) was solved so far.
My old APU1D4 is nealry eight years old and really slow, if i use it with OPNSense, IPS and Webfiltering. My new 300/20 internet line was melt down to 100/20. So i have to disable both features to get the full internet connection.
I have checked the Ligthning Wire Labs HP but the Appliance Mini seems to be to weak to serve my internet line and the Business appliance is to expensive to don’t run in trouble with my finance boss (e.g. wife).
There are two systems which seems to be powerfull enough to serve as a firewall to my network.
What do you mean, which one of them would be more convinient to serve as firewall with IPS and Proxy/URL filter?
