I followed the "Optimizing CentOS for gigabit firewall" posting and as 
some posters wrote pf is soo sooo ssooooo mutch faster, I was thinking 
to give it a try. But I'm not familier to BSD so I was looking for some 
tools and found "pfsense"


"pfSense is a free, open source customized distribution of FreeBSD 
tailored for use as a firewall and router"

Has any of the firewall guys on the list ever tested this distri?

What do you think?

Right now we run a iptables Shorewall system and had no problems so far, 
but having a "managed" firewall distri which rocks whould be an alternative.
