Hi everyone,

I am very interested in what Gumstix can do for a project I am working on.  I would like to put together a embedded Linux computer that acts as a internet gateway for POE Ethernet devices.  I am thinking of encrypting the data through a VPN tunnel (or other means) when it passes through this gateway computer.  I am also thinking of using the computer for a firewall and NAT.   I am also looking at adding wifi to the mix once I develop the basic part of the system.  First, will this work with gumstix and the embedded OS that comes with it?  If it will, what motherboard and addon cards would you recommend for development and the final product?  Thanks you for your time.

Thanks,

Jeff
