i've been using OpenBSD on Ultras as my preferred routers for years.
have a couple of Ultra1's and an Ultra2's and several T1125's with 
mostly qfe quad interfaces but also have no problems with the single
hme interfaces in either sbus or pci forms.  a great easy-to-configure
routing system.

note that OpenBSD has port forwarding _off_ in the default install so
it won't route until you turn it on in sysctl.
