IPFire v2.9 Core 48 Released.

IPFire is a source-based Linux firewall distribution that brings additional features with it. The easy-to-set-up system defeats its competitors like IPCop, Smoothwall and Endian-Firewall potty. A stateful-inspection-firewall with a luxuriant content-filtering-engine plus traffic-control (QoS) rounded with latest vpn-technology and a lot of logging is foolproof to administer with just a very few clicks.

So you can get anything out of IPFire you can imagine. Without any add-ons installed it is an ultra-fast firewall but can also be a full-featured home server. It's up to you what you want. Check it out...

After the first release of august 2005 the project relaunched an extremely flexible, stable and fast firewall, which was finally finished.

IPFire is new-developed firewall build with the latest releases of Linux 2.6 and tools. You are able to install a lot of add-ons and you will see a firewall can become a home server.

One of the highlight of this security accessories are the extensions to make a real home server out of it. You are able to install additional add-ons to the system with only a few mouse clicks. There are for example:

  • A fast fileserver for networks with Microsoft Windows
  • A local mailserver with virus scanning and spam detection
  • A multimedia-jukebox
  • A mp3- and ogg-streaming server
  • An Intrusion Prevention System plus Guardian
  • Voice over ip-solution with asterisk pbx
