Altimate Firewall

Altimate Firewall is a small and easy-to-use firewall, based on a hardened Gentoo system. It has an intuitive and easy-to-use Web interface. The Altimate Firewall uses Shorewall (LAN, WAN, DMZ), OpenVPN, PPTPD, IPSEC, and many more. It includes Avira WebGate and MailGate for safer browsing and for securing your email messages. The network settings can be easily managed by a non-professional.
