The $330 IPCop/Copfilter firewall 25 watt appliance

By ·Categories: Security·Published On: March 6th, 2008·1.3 min read·

Logic Supply sent George Ou at ZDNet a Morex 5677 Mini-ITX case, Jetway J7F2WE-1G Mini-ITX mainboard, 2.5″ HDD, and 512MB RAM, and a Jetway 3x Gb LAN module so he could build an IPCop/Copfilter firewall appliance. He recently posted his review of the system here.

For those of you who are not familiar with his blog, it is a very informative selection of articles that offers an in-depth view of “real-world IT.”

For people who are interested in configuring a system similar to the one Ou constructed, you can customize the SolidLogic 5677 Mini-ITX System on our Web site. We sell our firewalls as is, with no additional customization except the ability to choose a 2-port, 4-port, or 6-port (6-port only available in our rackmount firewall) configuration. Our firewalls come pre-installed with m0n0wall, 256MB RAM, and a 256MB flash module. Ou’s system was a specific request, and it never was offered as a configurable firewall option (contrary to what is posted in his article).

We did, however, err and send him the 3x Gb LAN module instead of the 3x 10/100 LAN module that comes with our firewalls. This was an oversight on our part, and it was a bit unfortunate that we made that mistake, but not a complete disaster. The Gb LAN module is not compatible with the m0n0wall software because it lacks the Gb drivers, so this is why we don’t offer it in our firewalls.

Check out his article; I would like to hear some feedback.
