Hallo Joe,

That's exactly the reason, why I (and a couple of friends) bought the
Soekris. The other reason was that Soekris has power-supplies.

I'd still prefer the WRAP, since the vpn1411 crypto-cards don't seem
to work with the Soekris machines :-/ there was an in-depth review on
this mailing-list about crypto-cards. Unfortunately it's not known,
whether it's a flaw in the hardware or a FreeBSD issue.

They just make a better website and have power-supplies. And finally
have listened to their customers: from October they offer the case in
black (nobody wanted the ugly greenish color).

Kind regards   Frederick
