    It's one of the best UTM distros, I really like it. If you have a spare computer, try it.

    Yes..it's a pretty good package. One of the better *nix router distros to deal with multi-WAN, and QoS/packet shaping.

    I don't consider it one of the UTM distros....as IMO UTM means it also does anti-virus, malware, and SPAM scanning/removal.

    I've played with a lot of *nix distros...also m0n0wall, Smoothwall, Clark Connect, IPCop....and...

    ...the more UTM distros..which means they do the virus/spam/malware scanning. These include IPCop with the Copfilter add-on, Endian, and my favorite that I've been using for some clients...Untangle.

    IPCop has a huge community, and many add-ons...Copfilter adds the scanning component.

    Endian is based on IPCop with Copfilter..in a much more matured and streamlined package.

    Untangle is just incredible..INCREDIBLE. Many components (racks) you can run, or disable.
