pfSense is BSD-based, right? That's a nice package. I set that up for a
cafe's wireless access three years or so ago. As I recall there was an
easy way to password-protect Internet access with it. I set it up to
change the config file each night so the proxy password was different
I think that was a live CD distribution that would pretty easily install
to a hard drive (which I did). I remember that it was pretty
straightforward to configure.
I have done VPN tunnels with OBSD and found they worked really well. I
did have trouble with the ISAKMP daemon (or some part of that) not being
reliable enough, but when I just used hardcoded keys it was great.
In any case, I find pf easier to deal with and remember than iptables.
