Using the KPC with Smoothwall 3.0 Tags: Routers Shuttle Networking Last response: April 24, 2008 3:10 PM in Networking Share xenpo April 23, 2008 8:01:11 PM Has anyone here thought of using Shuttle's KPC as a base for running smoothwall 3.0? Are there any special considerations anyone can think of in doing this? Thanks a lot!

You could even use something like this and save some cash: http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=BOXD201GLYL&cat... If you do go with the shuttle or the above system make sure to pick up an extra PCI NIC card since smoothwall needs at least 2 NICs. xenpo April 24, 2008 1:41:20 AM Thanks for the information, I'll look into that, for it certainly might turn out to be a cheaper alternative as well as not something that I void my own warrenty on installing extras.
