OT but for firewalls I do lots of work with various flavors, I have pretty
much settled on Pfsense, since I most of what I run is *nix based I like
the fact that its BSD based.  I have tired and tested lots of stuff and
that is the one that I have settled on, use and support.  Just something
else to add to the list
