IPfire hardware - router appliances for VPN and firewall

IPFire is an open source Linux distribution that acts primarily as a router and firewall, with a web-based user interface for configuration.
IPFire is based on Linux from Scratch.
The basic system is relatively slim, services such as: DHCP server, VPN based on IPSec / OpenVPN, firewall filters can be activated / deactivated. Pakfire, the Pakage package management system, can be used to install extensions and updates.

Although IPfire can be virtualized like an ordinary operating system, a 'real firewall' should always run on physical hardware, as network performance makes the difference, see the table below, throughput values with associated CPU, and network adapters.

The hardware we offer is tested for compatibility with IPfire, as shown below. See the complete TCP throughput test as a PDF with measured throughput values after the default installation.
