First, get on the forums there, as you will want support.  Untangle is 
billed as a product to replace m0n0wall, but it has faults.  The 
firewall is weak in feedback, they use only OpneVPN and have no IPsec, 
and there is no traffic shaping.  But if you place it in bridge mode 
behind a m0n0wall router, you get all that. Assign a static IP, and it 
only filters what you tell it.  But there can be some issues with 
complex routed networks, so get on the forums.
