Linux Firewall / PPPoE xDSL Connection

Recommended Posts

I am new to the Linux world and had a few questions regarding configuring a Linux box to act as a firewall, as well as, connecting to my local xDSL service.


As mentioned I would like the Linux box to connect via PPPoE to my ISP (xDSL) and provide firewalling to the rest on my internal segment.


I would like to know what Linux distro would be the best for this application, as well, what NIC's are recommended since I will need two.


The hardware I have allocated for this project;


AMD K6-2 - 400

512 MB RAM

Adaptec 2940 SCSI Card

40 GB SCSI drive

Acer Motherboard


Any help would be greatly apperciated.
