I recently saw this project in a FreeBSD mailing list. I tested it
with FreeBSD-5 and it works well out of the box. Beware: it is still
alpha software. I managed to get it run with Debian/mips after some
small modifications in the source code, although without using
iptables - just with its built in database. I haven't tested it
further nor have I running this software in a production environment.
But it might be a good starting point.
just my 2 cent,
