I was recently delving into thoughts of building a small home server to run random things off of (maybe a TF2 server). Thinking about this further I realized I would need to get a better firewall system for my current home network. I was wondering what would be a good Linux distro to run for a home network firewall?
There are a ton of distro's out there, and it is kinda overwhelming when you're new to it. I have looked at Zentyal (previously eBox), SmoothWall, M0n0wall and a couple others. I have little experience in setting up firewalls, but I am willing to do some research into it and give it a shot. I would just like a little help with the starting ground. If someone could provide some pro's/con's of available distro's or some insight on what might be best to set up in a home network it would be appreciated!
