    • includes VPN server and client capability.
    • may be configured as router & wifi access point.
    • can enforce VPN over wifi
  • pfSense (FreeBSD)
    • fork of M0n0wall
    • pfSense has very nice QoS for VoIP and traffic shaping, different from m0n0wall.
    • embedded version runs also on generic PC hardware, but unlike m0n0wall the output is directed to the serial port in this case. Therefore, for the embedded version you need a null-modem cable to connect from the serial port of your PC to the serial port of the router. Under Windows XP you can use HyperTerminal with settings for the serial connection of 9600 bits per second, 8 data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit and flow control set to hardware to see the output when the router boots. On linux you can use minicom as your terminal emulator.
