and has dual psu.

Subject: Firewall


I intend to use FreeBSD as a firewall and would appreciate hardware
suggestions. I'm
going to assume minimal logging (although this may be increased to trace
bugs), fast
throughput and fairly low level of redundancy (perhaps just a redundant
PSU?) due to
the unit being easily swapped out with a clone in the case of failure
(I've been
running FreeBSD since 2.2.5 and never had a server fall over yet ...
touch wood)

Ideally I'd like some sort of  rack mountable job. I very much like the
from Intel's pro 10/100 Nic's with FreeBSD but I'm open to suggestions
on that
front, too.

Anyway ... anybody with any experience of using FreeBSD to provide a
service and who could provide some specification suggestions for
hardware please do.
