My apologies if I posted this question to the wrong NetBSD mailing list.
Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could please recommend what cheap,
small, and low powered NetBSD platform and hardware that I can use for
an IPsec router firewall with at least 4 distinct 10/100 ethernet
interfaces. This router would be used for multipath routing, packet
filtering & NAT (ipf & ipnat), DHCP client, PPPoE client, and IPsec
(tunneling & IKE).
I am currently using ix86 NetBSD servers for this type of firewall
router, and was hoping that I can replace big, powerful hungry ix86
hardware with some type of cheap, light-weight, low-power hardware.
Since these routers aren't running any services, they can be embedded,
Any advice on which NetBSD hardware to use, from the many NetBSD
platforms, would be greatly appreciated.
