 Subject:  AW: [m0n0wall] feature request: VIA C3 nehemiah support
 Date:  Tue, 21 Jun 2005 17:36:00 +0200
The C3 benchmark results I posted to the pfsense list obviously were without hardware encryption.
CPU-Load was high during the tests and a C3 with padlock should work at nearly full interfacespeed
on a 100 mbit connection from what via promises on their site. open-vpn could take advantage of
padlock pobably though but openvpn was removed due to messing up opt interfaces in pfsense.
With other words: there is no padlock support for ipsec at the moment. The bench showed pure 
software-encryption. m0n0 should have similiar performance here, maybe even better because of the
faster 4.11 core.

Out of interest (and apologies to the list if this isn't the right place to
ask), is anyone maintaining a list of advantages and disadvantages of
m0n0wall vs. pfsense as their development proceeds?

Given the crypto performance results posted, I'm quite intrigued by the
possibility of using C3 chips for VPN routers, but I've no idea whether
pfsense is at a stable enough point to deploy to client premises.
