I've been using 1.11 w/o problem and now 1.2 w/o problem. My current
uptime on 1.2 is 45 days, and I think 1.1 ran for over 100 days w/o problem.
I'm using the magic shaper traffic shaping. We do have 2 Vonage phones
here, but I haven't found time/necessity to play with shaping yet. The
firewall is running on an old dell with 2 3com 905 and one (netgear, I
think) dc-based chipset NIC. The latter is connected to the net (fiber
optics) and the two others are connected to the lan (100 mbps) and DMZ
(100 mbps). I'm using 1-to-1 NAT for the DMZ servers and inbound nat as
well to expose some other stuff temporarily. There are 2 servers in the
LAN and 2 in the DMZ, and ~10 workstations in the LAN.
Hope this helps,
