    Best software Firewall ?

    I do Squid! I'd recommend running Squid with Dansguardian ....squid is the best but keep in mind it requires times and skills to install, manage and configure it with other components. I used it in many complex environments with success but again you need the skill in Linux and squid (open source packages)... check these documents too hxxp://www.linuxhelp.net/guides/squid/ hxxp://wiki.squid-cache.org/ hxxp://wiki.squid-cache.org/SquidFaq/SquidAcl#head-926288cb0cbbdea92bc4a807f06dd75ddbc446ff hxxp://www.linux-magazine.com/w3/issue/100/052-054_squid.pdf hxxp://www.linux-magazine.com/w3/issue/72/Squid_Bridge_HTTP_Proxy.pdf Use comodo DNS, norton DNS or openDNS services. Run or your clients PC http://www.prevx.com/ also you can check K9 hxxp://www1.k9webprotection.com/ Block web sites in more than 70 categories, including pornography, gambling, drugs, violence/hate/racism, malware/spyware, phishing Force SafeSearch on all major search engines Set time restrictions to block web access during designated times Configure custom lists for "always allow" and "always block" Override a web page block with password Trust the enhanced anti-tampering, even children can't break View easy reports to monitor and control web activity Real-time categorization of new adult and malicious sites Best free parental controls software/internet filter available hxxp://www.untangle.com/ Untangle provides a powerful suite of Internet management applications for small-to-medium businesses and education institutions. hxxp://www.iambigbrother.com/ IamBigBrother is the leading internet monitoring software available for both homes and business. And when using IamBigBrother, you'll know exactly who your kids chatted with last night and be able to read the full conversation! hxxp://www.refog.com/download.html REFOG Employee Monitor is the ultimate surveillance suite offered by our company. Having all features of our less advanced products, REFOG Employee Monitor is designed to boost productivity of your employees. The product can watch multiple PCs and workstations at once without leaving your chair. Instant alerts are handy to prevent information leaks the moment they are about to happen hxxp://www.eblaster.com/ eBlaster spy software is the ONLY software in the world that will capture their incoming and outgoing email, chats and instant messages - then IMMEDIATELY forward you an EXACT COPY. At home have a hardware firewall (erased the linksys firmware on my router with the DD_WRT) and on each PC running microsft, I run the Comodo Internet security (both firewall and anti-virus) and implemented beside that Squid Linux proxy server. Be aware open source firmware DD-WRT offers a number of builds, from a Micro and Mini generic with limited capabilities all the way to a VoIP-specific and VPN-specific build. Fortunately, a chart lists all the capabilities and various versions of DD-WRT include from Hotspot, IPv6, OpenVPN, PPTP, ProFTPD, SNMP, SSH, and Telnetd to a Samba/CIFS client. It has EoIP (Ethernet over IP, allowing you to bridge networks), VLAN, QoS, and advanced firewall (including the ability to block specific P2P networks). OpenWrt has a package system for additional add-ons, It has everything from Squid, NTP, OpenVPN, CUPS (printing support), and lightHTTPD to an IRC server, Nagios (network monitoring), Asterisk (a VoIP server), and the Perl programming language. The only catch is that you will need a router with a sufficiently large amount of storage space and memory To upgrade your router and make it more secure, I would recommend replacing the default firmware if you can. Make sure you check the compatibility lists! As stated in hxxp://www.linux-magazine.com/w3/issue/119/048-049_kurt.pdf

    choosing a right linux based firewall distro

    I would check this one alist of FW hxxp://distrowatch.com/dwres.php?resource=firewalls I believe you'd be much better served looking at some of the firewall applications based on open source such as linux and FreeBSD/OpenBSD such as above list for example Astaro's Security Gateway products, they're linux based so use the iptables firewall but also offer more then just packet filtering , plus subscriptions for updating the signatures databases on the various filters. Also you could go with a dedicated firewall distro like pfSense...hxxp://www.pfsense.com/ OpenBSD could be run as powerful firewall too If you want more then just a fiewall/gateway, then don't bother with IPCOP, Smoothwall, m0n0wall etc - they are all great, but lack the extra features.
