Hello!

I am new at the Mailing-List, so I dont really know if my question
is already disussed.

I am an OpenBSD Fans since version 2.5, and linke the System alot.
i already build various CF based firewalls with OpenBSD on different
hardware platforms (Security Appliance from Iwill.net).

I like the M0n0wall, because its a well designed project, with much
experience in it , and a neat web-interface.

Would it be possible to use an OpenBSD Kernel, and pf as an optional basis
for m0n0wall?

Waht would be the reasons to stick to FreeBSD and not to choose OpenBSD.
I dont want to start an OS war, but i would like to hear some reasons for
choosing the right system.

For me, the security centric approach of OpenBSD seems to be the natural
choice for an firewall.


regards
  Robert Depenbrock
