    If anyone is interested or is looking for good firewall software then have a gander at Astaro.

    http://www.astaro.com

    It is free for home use and its basically a linux distribution that you burn to a cd and boot onto an old pc.

    Its working for me and my father in law and you can link two of them in remote locations easy for a vpn !!

    Just letting people know if they are interested!! 8)

    You have to enter some details as they forward a trial licence to your email, but it is a bit misleading as you think you can only d/l a 30 day trial.

    However you need to set that you are a home user and you can get a 3 year home licence for the software.

    Once you register you can enter the MyAstaro section of the website where you can get the 3 year licence, get free online training via videos or a web seminar, and look through the knowledge base or go on the bulletin board.

    Here is a direct link to the latest stable version :

    Any probs let me know. :biggrin
