As a novice to diy firewall appliances I would appreciate your thumbnail comparison of IPfire v pfSense [v IPcop (mentioned a few posts down)]. The request is RPi topical as i have some parent/child concerns about RPi as interweb device given ease of swapping out SD. One of the two or both should allow rules requiring use of particular NS resolver but articles on the topic presuppose familiarity I lack. Searching the interweb has become irksome with high volumes of spam results and "articles" which exist to churn ads.

I'd like to learn more about that. If you have some URLs up your bookmark sleeve that'd be great.

ohh. Nonetheless I would like to glean a bit of wisdom.
That following this harsh critique is inspiring:
- SoC that is working on the RPi board is old. I mean really ooooold.
- not make benefit of a fast GPU
- LAN ports are connected to the USB bus which causes very poor performance.
And wow, arne.f, continues chugging away at RPi IPfire:
though I cannot determine if the feb posts are 2012 or 2013 with lack of year in the post timestamps
I'm going to need a larger stack of SD cards! Mine is merely six tall now.
if your project is still active would you consider also releasing it in BerryBoot ready format. I haven't been able to BBoot convert an image yet.
