huh? the card supports quite a lot! we've used a couple quite happily
under FreeBSD with AES-256. 3DES was quite happily working at around 200mbits
while CPU was free from any of that work (not on a soekris! - this
was a PIII 1GHz system).  there is, however, a patch which needs to be
applied to OpenSSL for it to use 256bit!

the world of bsd/Linux-supported SSL accelerator cards is very sparse.
many dont offer the feature set required...and those that have features
cannot use them without the companies proprietary..and mainly windows-based
drivers :-(
