IPfire hardware - router appliances for VPN and firewall

Updated: 2021-04-12




IPFire is operable via an intuitive webinterface, which offers a lot of options for beginners and even experienced administrators. IPFire is an open source Linux distribution that acts primarily as a router and firewall, with a web-based user interface for configuration.

IPFire is based on Linux from Scratch. The basic system is relatively slim, services such as: DHCP server, VPN based on IPSec / OpenVPN, firewall filters can be activated / deactivated. Pakfire, the Pakage package management system, can be used to install extensions and updates.

Although IPfire can be virtualized like an ordinary operating system, a 'real firewall' should always run on physical hardware, as network performance makes the difference. See below our hardware recommendation for IPfire.
