Endian Firewall is a "turn-key" linux security distribution based on IPCop that turns every system into a full featured security appliance. Endian Firewall has been designed with "usability in mind" and is very easy to install, use and mange, without loosing its flexibility.

The features include a stateful packet inspection firewall, application-level proxies for variuos protocols (HTTP, POP3, SMTP) with antivirus support, virus and spamfiltering for email traffic (POP and SMTP), content filtering of Web traffic and a "hassle free" VPN solution (based on OpenVPN).
