I have got the SC440 up and running.  I did end up having to run a beta of 
PFSense to get the adapters to be detected correctly.  The on-board is not 
working but the 575 is and I had a dell 10/100 and I stuck that in the 
server and brought everything up.

I am seeing a drop in ping times across the vpn tunnels and I am 
experimenting with the traffic shaping.  That seems to be helping with some 
of the stuff that I am working on.

I had been running M0n0Wall for almost a year with no major issues.  I 
changed to PFSense only after I got a surge that knocked out my M0n0Wall box 
and the only hardware I could find would not detect under M0n0Wall 

The big thing I noticed was that the IPSEC VPN tunnels stayed up and had a 
better responce time.  FTP transfers across the tunnels where faster and RDP 
over VPN was more responsive as well.

When I got my new server M0n0Wall would not detect any nic's in the server. 
I tried to use the 1.01 version of PFSense.  That did not work either. 
Download the current Beta not a problem in the world yet.

I am going to continue to use both products.  They both have a place.  I 
keep everyone up to date on my testing.
