Smoothwall is, basically, the paid version of Dan’s Guardian.  We got one about 2 years ago (just used for content filtering on & off site) and I’m not impressed.

Barracuda makes a nice one.

Used to use a free smoothwall firewall years ago, I don't think they did content filtering back then.  When I needed something more full featured we went with a Fortigate UTM appliance.  I'd recommend checking them out, too.

Dear List Folk,

Although I'm now one of those people from "down there" I never forget how much incredible knowledge and innovation is in Vermont.

Anyway, at ACRSD we've recently been looking at UTMs, including Smoothwall, Meraki, Sophos, and Shark. I'm familiar with the Sophos model from work we did in WWSU, but am wondering if anyone has experience with any of the others.

In particular, the Smoothwall UTM has, according to the company reps, some really nice content filtering capabilities. Has anyone had actual experience with that?

Thanks for any help you can give,
