Does any1 have experience of using linux-based firewalls with so many
clients (i will use NAT and have 13 static ips) ? If yes, how's the hardware

	Any current hardware should be good for at least 50 Mbit/s


According to NetworkWorld 10/2001 the Pyramid Astaro firewall appliance (Celeron 750, 128 MB RAM) makes ~70Mbit/s filtered, VPN ~ 20Mbit/s
(encrypted with 3DES).

In comparison I work(ed) for companies with some thousand clients who use a mere 2Mbit/s uplink. Okay, granted, that uplink is saturated ad ultimo...
