IPCop is a powerful, open source, Linux based firewall distribution for primarily Small Office Or Home (SOHO) networks, although it can be used in larger networks. It provides most of the features that you would expect a modern firewall to have, and most importantly it sets this all up for you in a highly automated and simplified way. This book is an easy introduction to this popular application.
