10 Firewalls and their associated tools

Thats not all, to prevent unauthorized or unwanted communications between computer networks or hosts we also giving away 10 most powerfull firewalls in this DVD.

m0n0wall: This is a project aimed at creating a complete, embedded firewall software package that, when used together with an embedded PC, provides all the important features of commercial firewall boxes (including ease of use) at a fraction of the price (free software).m0n0wall is based on a bare-bones version of FreeBSD, along with a web server, PHP and a few other utilities. The entire system configuration is stored in one single XML text file to keep things transparent.

Endian Firewall Community(EFW): It is a “turn-key” Linux security distribution that turns every system into a full featured security appliance with Unified Threat Management (UTM) functionality. The software has been designed with “usability in mind” and is very easy to install, use and manage, without losing its flexibility.
