    I have recently deployed untangle with OpenVPN for remote access to my internal resources. Does anyone have any tips/recommendations to harden the system?

    Looks like Id have to pay for the complete pro package which runs $540 for 1 year to get MAC filtering capabilities.

    Is this for home. If so it's only $200 for 5 years

    Yes this is for home. However, $200 for a 5 year license seems kind of dumb for a home user.

    Being an untangle user, what have you done to harden the system?

    I looked at both of those. Neither one detects my add on NIC. I am using a Lenovo ThinkCenter M93P Tiny PC with a USB 3.0 gigabit secondary NIC for the internal LAN. The integrated NIC is for the external ISP connection. Untangle was the only provider that I found that actually recognized the second NIC.

    I have created a rule to block all traffic. Above that I have allowed all SMTP, IMAP, HTTP, and HTTPS traffic. I have excluded Teamspeak traffic and enabled QOS on that. Everything else is blocked.
