recommended router plattform



Hi,

http://wiki.skolelinux.no/DebianEdu/Documentation/Etch/Requirements currently 
says at the bottom: 

'Internet-Router
A router/gateway, connected to the internet on the external interface and 
running on the IP address 10.0.2.1 on the internal interface. The router must 
not run a DHCP server, it can run a DNS server, though this is not needed and 
will not be used. 
FIXME: We suggest coyote (link) or or. link to setup documentation'


So I was going to add a link to coyote and found the following on its homepage 
at http://www.coyotelinux.com/products.php?Product=coyote

'NOTE: This product is licensed for personal and educational use only. If you 
would like to use our products for commercial or government use, please see 
the "Wolverine Firewall and VPN Server". '


That it's not free as in DFSG is one issue (which we could choose to ignore, I 
personaly dont want to do that, though), a more practical is probably the 
question what goverments wanting to use it in education are supposed to 
choose ;-)

So I would rather like to suggest/link to OpenWRT (which supports i386 now 
too) and/or suggesting to use a Debian based router. (There is also fli4li 
(not sure if there is english documentation) and LEAF.)

What do you think?


regards,
	Holger

P.S.: Coyote has been suggested since Debian Edu woody, _AFAIK_.
