We are considering rolling out DL as a routing firewall for our internal
network (with VPN use too). I wondered if anyone else was doing this, and
had any comments about capacity and throughput. I realise this is to some
extent dependent on firewall complexity - as a rough guide, our IPtables
firewall script is about 894 lines, of which over half is comment.
We're looking to handle 50 users with significant email and web traffic, but
not a great deal else. A maximum of probably 5 VPN users at any one time.
The hardware would be 400 MHz Pentium III with 512MB RAM and two Intel 100
Pro cards. This is ultimately connected externally to a 512k leased line.
I don't envisage any significant problems, but it would be nice to hear from
someone else that they are doing the same thing.

a couple of month ago, I used DL for a VPN experiment.
I had an IPSec Tunnel with X.509 Authentication and through this one a
PPTP Tunnel with 40 Bit Encryption. The throughput was on a Celeron 800
about 40 MBit/s.
So you shouldn't have any problems.
