  Based on what you are asking for, I think m0n0BSD would be a good
choice.  You can run the BSD kernel and whatever services you want on an
old PC, or even a Soekris if you want something appliance like that
doesn't make any noise.  Manuel suggested using Webmin, which would give
you a decent web administration utility.  If that doesn't work for you,
then you're just too hard to please. :-)

Yes, I checked that also. Very nice.

I thought so. Thank you for pointing that out so clear.

Too sad, the GUI was my main reason regarding m0n0wall. It is really the

UI I had hoped to use.

Anyway, it seems I will need to roll my own stuff from the ground up, 
since the targets of all such efforts are likely either 
Firewall/Router/AP systems without storage or full-blown Linux- BSD-, 
etc. machines. I dislike either in a home-environment.

Bye, Andreas
