Firewall/router?

Hi all,

First of all, sorry if this post is in the wrong group, if it is could you
please point me to the correct one.


I have been running a W2K box as a
webserver/firewall/ftpserver/mailserver/router for my lan for a while. I’m
thinking of changing the operatingsystem on the system and my thoughts fell
on linux, and now I have tried different flavours of it and I don’t like it.

I then started looking at alternative operatingsystems and came over a cd
with the QNX rtp on it. Before installing it, are all the features
(webserver/ftpserver/mailserver/router) that my current W2K box has
avaliable with QNX rtp? I can live without the mail and ftp server, but I
need the web server and routing function.

Regards/
John-Henri

What made you “not like” the linux idea? I ask only because the same tools
are used to configure a QNX box for routing, mail etc.

I never really got it to work the way I wanted. Could have been poor
hardware, or lack of time on my side… I like the idea of running an OS
that isn’t “on every mans box” if you know what I mean.

By the way, is QNX rtp smp capable?
