VPN + firewall appliance

Gday folks.
Wondering if someone can recommend me a firewall/VPN/net filter for a small business of 50ish employees?

Ive used sonicwalls in the past, and found them to be rock solid, but their(ipsec based?) VPN client is a proprietary pain in the ass, and is not available for linux(which is a necessity).

Junipers are good, but too expensive.

So anyone know a device that can do:
1) Firewall
2) VPN endpoint with either an open standard or with a Linux supported client.
3) Basic usage monitoring, and basic url blacklisting.

thanks

The Snapgear units are your best bet if your budget conscious and looking for a hardware solution, there’s a bunch of optional extras for those units also if you want to use them.

Alternatively if you’re so inclined you could put in a white box software solution such as Endian or Pfsense – Yawarra – Sells a nice hardware solution to run these software products on: http://www.yawarra.com.au/index.php

The low-end Juniper kit isn't that expensive - something like a Netscreen 5GT would probably be a good fit.

Other than that, maybe a cheap Cisco ASA box.

ClarkCOnnect linux distro, or SME server.
