Hello Sultan:

I have with FreeBSD about 1 year and I have config and run many services such as NAT/Router/Firewall/Ipfilter, Mailserver, DNS server, DHCP Server, Cache proxy server. But soon, I will have to handle VPN Project from Cambodia to Singapore which got existing Cisco infrastructure. I think my customer will not choose FreeBSD for thier VPN Tunnel.

But anyway, I want to know see whether some Internet Backbone or ISP used FreeBSD as thier Internet facilities as us or not.

I hope we can be a good friend in FreeBSD. but I just start into it around 1 year.

Hello Richard,

 I have been using FreeBSD since 1998 and never had to use cisco,
 Freebsd has a great builtin features,
I'm Using Freebsd for a hotspotlogin, with no external servers from anykind,
 Its my radius, router, ipfw, internetspot login, NAT and port directions.

Also i have 2 additional servers in two diffrent locations each has its own bzns, running
 DNS, email services, hosting, and hundreds of other services.

Since i knew FreeBSD i never had to touch any cisco or any other creatures in general.
 except a HUB and some cables. :)

 I dunt know if you still need Cisco router or anyother machines,
 maybe as some gurus here wrote, depends on your needs.

 best of luck.
 and take a look on FreeBSD handbook, on www.freebsd.org
maybe you will find the part you are looking for in routing or cisco that freebsd will do.

 best of luck

Dear all,

I want to know, between Cisco Router and a compiled of FreeBSD Router which one is better? Is it posible to build a Router Appliance on FreeBSD instead of using ISO of Cisco?
