Try pfsense (www.pfsense.com) and use the dual wan feature and route the
VOIP phones through the second connection so that u don't need another box,
just some more nics :)

Its based off m0n0 so it should be simple to switch over.

Subject: [m0n0wall] Really Light Virtualisation

I'm finding more and more that I need to install a pair of m0n0wall boxes at
clients' premises, usually where they've got a separate ADSL connection
purely for VoIP use. The phones simply use the second m0n0wall as the
default gateway.

Anyway, it's not a particularly friendly use of resources. I know folks are
running multiple m0n0walls in vmware environments, but is there any
virtualisation software much lighter than vmware that'd run on a low-spec
PC? VMware itself isn't really the problem - it's more that in order to run
it under *nix requires a pretty full install of the *nix in question, with
all the hardware requirements that entails.

Any alternative suggestions would be gratefully appreciated.
