    Thanks for developing, maintaining and improving an excellent FOSS product. I, like many others, really appreciate it and the effort that goes into it. I've been using IPCop, initially version 1, later 2 and now 2.1.19) for years to drive a small domestic/SOHO firewall/router and throughout the time it's worked reliably and well. The hardware is an old VIA ITX board with 512 MB, a PATA-attached 4GB Compact Flash, and an Intel quad-port PCI NIC. Even when under heavy use the hardware runs IPCop without breaking sweat and consumes negligible power to do so. (i.e. it barely shows up on the hose smart-meter.) The ITX board has a built-in VIA Samuel 2 CentaurHauls CPU that cannot run Pentium code so I very much appreciate the fact that IPCop is built to run on pre-Pentium CPUs. The web GUI is a little opaque at first but that lessens with use and the recent changes to it have improved matters. Begin able to SSH in to the box helps as well, especially as once shelled in it's standard Linux and hence familiar territory. I like the out of the box provision of orange and blue sub-nets in addition to the basic red and green. I installed the 'extra interfaces' plug-in to obtain an additional grey interface (on V2.1), which installed painlessly and has worked well. Overall, IPCop has been an excellent platform. Thanks again. Keep up the good work!

    It does what it promises. With a basic understanding of how networks are designed, installation is relatively painless. The online documentation is outstanding -- clear and comprehensive. Not every single bell and whistle is incorporated into the project, but there are a few easy to understand reasons for this (potentially less secure, more complicated management, limited resources, etc). In other words, IPCop seems, to an extent, to adhere to the "KISS" principle -- and the resulting product works quite well.

    Top notch firewall. I am using an HP thin client computer I picked up on EBay for 25 dollars. Replaced the installed MOD with 6GB unit and replaced the 512MB ram with a 1GB unit. Running Copfilter with anti spam and anti virus. Have not turned on the other Copfilter options yet- I want to run another month or so to make sure I don't have any internet access problems.
