I have am EM hard www.emsp.no on my test net with more than 2000 rules, only
if the net bandwith is very hard, we have a little problems. The problem
more detected is
With many connections from the same protocol, specially pop3 , from an IP
and to one IP.
A lot of static routes is a hard work to the m0n0 if the hard is a low
But the maintenance for a high rules number is very hard, for this I prefer
sonicwall 1260 or 2040.

Hi all,

  I need to substitute our production firewall, and I'd like to use M0n0wall
which I've already successfully used for home or small office environments.

The solution I'm going to substitute is based on Linux-iptables which
requires more than 1000 rules. I need more than 25 static routes, and 5

Furthermore, in the next future we are migrating 2 of 3 network branches on

I'd like to try with m0n0, but my boss (I'm sure) will kill me in the event
I spend half a week in setting up the new m0n0 and writing down all the
rules to see that m0n0wall is not the right solution.

Is there a rules number limit or a session number limit implemented in m0n0?

Does somebody have some expertize in similar situations?

Anybody able to supply info or suggenstions?

Tanks in advance
