I don't see why you want to pidgeon-hole m0n0wall as a SOHO firewall; it
is many more things besides that. m0n0wall can be both a "cheap but
powerfull firewall/router" AND it can be a " true substitute to higher
end firewalls and cisco routers". Thats part of the beauty of it.

it if you can't outwardly say you're compatible/compliant with it.

 I substituted "checkpoint firewalls" for "higher end firewalls" as
i've no experience of checkpoint firewalls themselves but plenty of
experience of other makes / brands.
