Firewall and Router

Devil-Linux

Devil-Linux “Devil-Linux is a distribution which boots and runs completely from CDROM. The configuration can be saved to a floppy diskette or a USB pen drive. Devil Linux was originally intended to be a dedicated firewall/router but now Devil-Linux can also be used as a server for many applications. Attaching an optional hard drive is easy, and many network services are included in the distribution.”

Origin – Home Page: USA – Devil-Linux

Management Interface: Command LIne (CLI)

Price: Free and Open Source

Key Features: Runs from live CD, but configuration can be saved to a write-protected floppy or USB drive; provides a build system with which to create a customized version of Devil Linux; may be installed to a USB drive; LVM and RAID support for installation to hard disk; support for VPNs with X.509 certificate authentication; some IDS functionalities; could be used as an application server for the following services:

  • SMTP, HTTP, and FTP
  • File and proxy services
  • NTP, DNS, and DHCP

Comments: At a time when some Linux desktop distros have abandoned Logical volume Management (LVM), it’s good to see that Devil Linux requires LVM installation to hard disk. When configured, LVM provides better storage management than traditional Linux partitioning schemes. Unlike other distros in its category, Devil-Linux does not have a fancy GUI for management; you’ll have to deal with the Linux command line if you want to use this distro. for those new to Linux, the Linux command line is a very powerful interface with which to interact with a Linux system, and a better way to learn the geeky side of Linux.

Download/Buy: Download. Devil-Linux is completely free, however, you may help fund the project by purchasing Devil-Linux gear emblazoned with the Devil-Linux logo at the Devil-Linux Webshop. Commercial support for Devil Linux is available from Pantek, Inc.
