IPCop Firewall

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:02 UTC


IPCop Linux is a complete Linux Distribution whose sole purpose is to protect the networks it is installed on. After seeing the direction certain Linux Distributions were heading in, a group of dissatisfied users/developers decided that there was little reason for the idea of a GPL Linux Firewall Distribution of such potential to be, simply, extinguished. By implementing existing technology, outstanding new technology and secure programming practices IPCop is the Linux Distribution for those wanting to keep their computers/networks safe. The IPCop Linux Team is dedicated to doing the very best job possible to keep your systems safe, as you can see on our site. "The Bad Packets Stop Here!"

I really hope that they won't discontinue the project because I am very impressed about this massive firewall solution. Very flexible, reliable, loophole-proof and imho a must-have for security aficionados.

I've been using IPCop since 2006. It is fantastic, very customisable and rock solid. I run it on an Atom D410 with 2GB memory and an SSD, in a fanless VESA mount case. I use the Snort and Guardian add-ons, among others. I also run some other stuff on the same machine, like Minecraft server and AssaultCube server. I wrote my own monitoring tool for the hardware using gnuplot, html and bash. I used the TCC to build rkhunter on the machine.

I initially used it with PPPoE with a Kyocera modem and burst technology (I am in ZA) on Red. Now I have a Huawei 4G LTE router that connects to Red via dhcp. On Green I have an SMC EzConnect switch that provides safe, filtered and snorted internet to my family.

The community is helpful, in the ipcop-user mailing list as well as the Sourceforge forum. I have had a plugin-developer make a custom version of a plugin (Snort) for me for Eth over USB.

I am actually running 2.1.9 but it is not configured here. I installed 2.1.5 and the rest is done with updates, which work seamlessly. It has a vibrant following in Germany. I hope the project doesn't die. Kernel and other software is getting a bit long in the tooth.
