Since it turns out buying the recommended pfSense SG-2440 is not possible at the moment, I’m looking for alternatives. My preference would be for a small machine / router running GNU/Linux with the required number of ports.
The downside is that instead of following the pfSense documentation we would need to adapt to either iptables or some higher level interface. Unless we can run pfSense on any hardware: that would be convenient.
