BandwidthD issues. The Hunt For the Ultimate Free Open Source Firewall Distro. I've been a hard-core Untangle fan for several years now, but I recently wanted to explore other firewall options.

The Hunt For the Ultimate Free Open Source Firewall Distro

Being wrapped around a commercial product, Untangle charges money for its high-end features. However, I figured since most all those features are covered by the open source community, there must be non-commercial options out there. I began my hunt for the best free firewall. I scoured the internet, downloading any and all offerings from 2 principal types of entities: 1. companies with an open source community branch or free non-trial version, and 2. open source community projects ("free as in speech" or free software / paid support biz models).

I tried just about every ISO I could get my hands on.

What is bandwithd? Bandwidthd is a unix deamon for graphing the traffic generated by each machine on several configurable subnets. It is much easier to configure than mrtg, and provides significanlty more usefull information. Mrtg only tells you how much bandwidthd you are using, bandwidthd tells you that, and who is using it. Each ip address that has moved any significant volume of traffic has its own graph. Bandwidthd is targeted to run on my routing platforms. Take a look at these screenshots to see what it looks like: BandwidthD Pic 1BandwidthD Pic 2 2. If you are upgrading from an older version your logs and graphs will not be kept.If you do want to keep your old data you must move or backup your old bandwidthd folder. Grab the bandwidth archive from here (283k).
