Hardware based firewall using old pcs

IPCOPper (who commented on Techlicious) said… Take one older Pentium class box, 90Mhz to 800 Mhz, 16MB to 64MB RAM, add two NICs, IPCOP.org , and you have a very tough firewall, router with no need for monitor, keyboard, mouse, CDrom.

You can download IPCop at SourceForge

>> Read about IPCop FAQs here and documentations here

So people, don’t throw away your still working old machine just yet! 😉 ….. I have a few myself.
